RECIPES

Checkers - May 21st, 15:17

Nothing improves your afternoon coffee and a rusk like a little more coffee in your rusk. What can we say, we’re addicted!

Ingredients

2/5 cup (100 ml) Foreign Ground espresso, chilled
1 pkt (100 g) raw Padkos macadamia nuts, chopped

1 3/5 cup (400 ml) buttermilk
1 ½ cup (375 ml) sugar
1.25kg self-raising flour
Butter, for greasing

2 extra large eggs
1 tsp. (5 ml) salt
500 g butter

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180C. Grease two loaf tins with butter.
2. Sift flour and salt into a large bowl.
3. Rub butter into flour until it resembles breadcrumbs and stir in the sugar.
4. Whisk buttermilk, eggs, and espresso together. Add mixture to the dry ingredients, add the nuts and stir to combine.
5. Roll dough into 30 small balls and pack together in the greased bread tins, 15 in each tin.
6. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from tins and cool on a wire rack.
7. Separate rusks from each other and place in a single layer on baking trays.
8. Reduce oven temperature to 60C and place rusks in the oven to dry out for 4-6 hours.Click here for more Checkers recipes
