How to make Cake Rusk

            Cake Rusks are famous in Pakistan and as well as in some parts of the world. They are easy to make cake for breakfast and afternoon teas. Learn how below.

What you need:

8 cups of flour


½ cup lukewarm water

1 tsp. Sugar

1 ½ tsp. Salt

½ cup Cooking Oil

2 large eggs

¾ cup Sugar

2 tsp. Cardamom Seeds

2 cups warm water

What to do:

First, dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water. Pour in one teaspoon of sugar, stir, and leave for about an hour. Next, get the oil and mix it with the cup sugar, eggs, salt, and warm water, and the dissolved yeast. Stir the cardamom seeds into the flour an start kneading. Grease a bowl with oil and place the kneaded dough there. Brush the top with melted butter, cover, and wait until the dough rises.

            Grab your pans and shape them in loaves. Bake until golden brown and cool. After, slice and let it dry for a while. Then toast all the sliced until they are dry and brown. Enjoy!

            Here is another, slightly different variation of making cake rusks. There is no kneading or using of an oven toaster needed in this recipe.

What you need:

4 ounces of butter

4 ounces of caster sugar

3 big eggs

4 ounces of flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon vanilla essence

Food coloring (Yellow)

What to do:

            First thing to do is to whisk the butter, melted of course. Add the caster sugar and whisk once more. Gradually add the eggs as you are whisking.

Start sifting the flour and the baking powder. Add the vanilla essence into the butter mixture, then slowly add the flour while beating using an electric beater. Add the food color when you are almost done.

Get your pan and brush it with some oil or butter. Sprinkle some flour over it. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Preheat the oven and bake the mixture at 180C. Cool the cake when it is done, just like in the first recipe, and slice. Place the slices back in the oven for half an hour, turn the cake over after fifteen minutes into the time.

When it is done, cool, and serve as is. And it’s also great with some tea! Thank you for reading and hope you enjoy baking this delicious treat!
