With Bread Crusts ✿ Caramel Almond Rusks

With Bread Crusts ✿ Caramel Almond Rusks

I used leftover bread crusts from sandwiches and made them into rusks ✿
They are crunchy and crispy. Once you have one, you won't be able to stop ♫

Ingredients: bread crusts from 1 loaf

Bread crusts from an 8 slice loaf
1 bag
Butter
50 g
Granulated sugar
50 g
Heavy cream
3 tablespoons
Caramel cream
2 tablespoons
Salt
a pinch
Sliced almonds
29 g

Steps

1. Cut the bread crusts into 1/4s. Finely chop the sliced almonds. (alternatively you could used diced almonds).
2. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes at 130℃ until crispy. Remove from the oven, and bake the almonds for about 3 minutes in the residual heat.
3. Add butter and granulated sugar into a frying pan, and melt over a medium heat.
4. When the mixture starts to bubble and brown, add the heavy cream, caramel cream, and salt, then simmer.
5. Simmer until it turns a beautiful caramel colour.
6. Add the bread crusts and almonds, and toss quickly. Continue pan-frying for a little while.
7. Use the same parchment paper from Step 2 and spread the bread crusts so that they won't stick to each other. Let cool. (You don't need to pan fry any more.)
8. Done ✿

Story Behind this Recipe

I received delicious caramel rusks as a souvenir and I wanted to make something similar myself, so I created this recipe ♫
