Barley rusks


  • In a mixer, using the hook attachment, beat all of the ingredients for at least 10 minutes on medium speed, until a nice and elastic dough forms. You can also knead it with your hands, but it will take more time.
  • Form 1-2 round loafs and place them in a baking pan, lined with parchment paper. Do not place the loafs too close to one another, because they will puff.
  • Using a knife, cut 2 cm thick slices, but do not cut through (the slices should still be attached to the loaf).
  • Cover the baking pan with a plastic wrap or a towel. Bake the loafs for at least 1 hour until they puff up and are twice the size in volume. It’s better to place the loaves on a warm place.
  • Preheat oven over 180°C (350* F) set to Fan.
  • Place the baking pan in the oven and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
  • Check on the loaves to see if they are baked (if you hit them on their bottom, they will make a hollow sound).
  • Remove from oven and set them aside to cool.
  • Cut off the slices you’ve made before using a knife.
  • Place the slices into baking pans. Lower the oven at 120°C (248* F) and bake for 30 more minutes, until the slices are crispy.
  • Remove from oven and set them aside to cool.
  • Serve with tomato, vegan cheese, basil leaves, and pepper.


You can add more or less star anise and salt, depending on your taste.
