Dairy Free Rusks

If you suffer from Dairy Allergies like my family does, you can sometimes get a little frustrated with the lack of suitable recipes avaibable. I have adapted my recipes to cater for my family and I will be sharing some of my favourites in the coming weeks.

(If you do not know what a rusk is, find a South African and ask them to explain to you.)
1,5kg selfraising flour
5ml baking powder
100ml Pronutro (optional)
100ml raw oats
350ml sugar
1/2 cup crushed pecan nuts
1/2 cup slivered almonds
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
3 tablespoons sunflower seeds
2 eggs
500g dairy free margerine - melted
500ml soy vanilla yoghurt
5ml vanilla extract
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Mix the rest of the ingredients in a seperate bowl.
Now mix all the ingredients together in the large bowl.
*Hands are definitely needed for this exercise*
Roll portions into balls and then flatten out slightly.

Pack into 3 rows of balls in 3 greased bread tins.
Bake for 30-45 minutes in 180 deg C oven until cooked.
Allow to cool and then break apart and dry overnight in a 70 - 100 deg C oven.
Once completely dried and cooled, store in an airtight container.
Make yourself a good cup of coffee, dunk and enjoy!
