The Story behind Beskuitblik
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.
