The Story behind Beskuitblik

My name is Brenda Smit and I’m born and bred in South Africa.  My family and I moved to the Netherlands in 1998. Cooking and baking has always been my passion and my family and friend’s love for my rusks encouraged me to bake more.

My passion for baking rusks has always been a family affair. My grandfather, the minister of a church in Molteno in the Eastern Cape, encouraged one of his church members to enter her rusk recipe in a competition.  She won this competition and to this day her famous rusks are still sold in South Africa.

I use my mother and mother-in-law’s well tried recipes. My mother-in-law also supplied rusks to shops that sell homemade goodies and thankfully she let me in on the secret of baking in bulk.
