Number of Servings: 30


    1 kg [35.2 oz] Self raising flour
    10 ml [2.082 tsp] Salt
    10 ml [2.082 tsp] Baking powder
    375ml [1.582 cup] Sugar
    1 litre [4.22 cup] All Bran uncrushed (or 750 ml [3.165 cups] Wheat cereal biscuits)
    250g Butter
    2 Eggs
    500ml [2.11 cup] Buttermilk
    100ml [6.76 tbs/ 0.422 cup] Olive oil
    1 cup Craisins (can also try Sultanas or Raisins)

    optional [not calculated into this recipe]:
    1/2 cup Sunflower seeds


Crush the All Bran and mix with the rest of the dry ingredients (including cranberries)

Melt the butter and leave to cool slightly

Mix the buttermilk, eggs and olive oil together and then add to the butter

Mix this mixture into the dry ingredients and knead well

Place in a buttered baking dish

Bake in the oven at 180 degrees until cooked through

Allow to cool before cutting into your desired size (often cut into pieces of about 1" squared with varying length/height)

You can eat as is for a soft bread type snack or you can dry out (the traditional South African way) in the oven for a few hours at 100 degrees celcius, until hard

Keep the oven door slightly ajar (I use the arm of a wooden spoon) to allow moisture to escape

Makes about 60 small rusks.
In this recipe, 2 small rusks = 1 serving.
