Yield: 1 Cake
|8 ounces||Self-raising Flour|
|Pinch of salt|
|A little milk or water|
Set oven to 450/F or Mark 8. Sift the flour and salt together into a bowl, then rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the beaten egg and sufficient milk or water to make a smooth dough. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to about 1 inch in thickness then cut into 2½ inch rounds. Place on a greased baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes.

Return the Rusks to the baking sheet, cut side upwards, and cook for a further 10 to 15 minutes until crisp and golden-brown. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with butter and jam at teatime or as a savoury with cheese or Bloater Savoury. Suffolk Rusks store well in a tin.
