Good Morning Everyone! Today I have "Cake Rusk Recipe " for you guys. Best goes with tea or coffee, & a delightful snack to take. It's an Asian Dessert, a Biscotti; double baked cookies;very simple to make and prepare. 

Preparation has been divided into 2 steps; 
1)   Bake it as a cake (with a slight change of ingredients and their quantity); 
2)  By cutting out the rectangular strips, these are baked twice. Leaving a Perfect with crispy and Golden looks. 
Again it's a request by one of my sweet sweet friend, 'Sam',  who wanted to make for her family breakfast. I tried these for the first time, but trust me guys it turned out so well more than my expectations. I've just made the half quantity of the actual recipe; seriously speaking didn't wanted to waste all ingredients as it was my first trial. 

Actual Recipe was :
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Butter/Margarine
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup Icing/Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • few drops of Yellow color
  • Pinch of Salt 
  • Square Baking pan 8 X 8 inches

CAKE RUSK RECIPE; I WENT FOR  { (all the ingredients in Actual Recipe) / 2) }

  • 1 egg + 1/2 Egg (just beat a single egg and make it 1/2)
  • 1/4 cup Butter/Margarine

  • 3/8 cup Icing/Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

  • Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt together. Keep it aside
  • Now take a large bowl, start beating Butter/Margarine till creamy. Meanwhile add Icing sugar. Wait until it smooth batter is formed
