White Chocolate Chai Rusks

Question: if it’s winter and you haven’t baked a batch of rusks, is it really winter at all? I don’t think I can ever remember a winter that didn’t start with my mother making a ridiculous amount of rusks. It happened like clockwork and it was (and still is) the only time I ever eat rusks. My mom’s recipe is always my go-to and I love giving it different variations – like these Maltabella rusks I made 2 years ago and this White Chocolate Pecan Chai version is probably the most decadent one yet! 

While playing around with the recipe, I realised that Nutriday Double Cream yoghurt makes an even more delicious rusk than buttermilk – which is convenient because most of us have a tub in our fridge but don’t generally have buttermilk ‘lying’ around. The slight acidity and extra creaminess of the yoghurt is just perfect with the white chocolate! 

White Chocolate Chai Rusks

To make them super decadent, I packed some of my white baking chocolate (which you can buy here) on top so that when it bakes, it comes out super caramel-ly and each bite is filled with caramelised white chocolate. 

The best part is that you can double or even triple the recipe and store it in an airtight container for whenever the craving hits!
