Healthy and homemade sweet rusks
Healthy and delicious recipes are hard to find nowadays! A little bit the complexity of the recipes, a little bit the dietary restrictions, the ingredients are becoming more and more demanding and expensive!
A sweet recipe that unfortunately I do not remember how I found to be able to cite a source, helped me a lot during pregnancy when sugar was a forbidden fruit!
The ingredients must be at room temperature for the recipe to work properly. They only 8 ingredients and we will usually find them in every household!
Ingredients for about 30 rusks:
– 3 cups flour for all uses
– 60 grams of unsalted butter
– 2 tablespoons baking powder
– 1/3 cup honey or brown sugar or sweetener of your choice such as stevia, coconut sugar, agave syrup etc
– 1/2 cup blonde or black raisins
– 3 medium eggs
– 1 vanilla
– 1 sachet of milk or dark chocolate couverture in drops or broken couverture in pieces
optional 1/3 cup walnuts into pieces
We start by beating the butter with the honey or sugar until fluffy. Add the 2.5 eggs which you have first beaten lightly to mix the yolk with the egg white. Continue with the baking powder, raisins, vanilla and walnuts (if desired) and add the flour last.
When it becomes a tight mass, start to knead it to mix well and shape two loaves equal in dimension, about 25 * 2 cm and sprinkle on top with the leftover egg.
Preheat the oven to 160 ° C and put the loaves to bake for 35 minutes. Τake them out, let them cool and cut them into slices in the dimension you want to be your sweet crackers. Finally, spread the crackers in a pan and bake at 150 ° C for 7 minutes on one side and 7 minutes on the other!
The sweet rusks are ready and delicious !!!!
