Chai time is incomplete without some snacks. Rusks have always been my personal favourite. This time, I thought of bringing you a recipe of crunchy and tasty cake rusks. Cake rusks are a lot softer than regular rusks and taste great. 

You can prepare these rusks in a large quantity and store them in an air-tight container for longer use.
