Emitting a vanilla aroma, we could see bits of candied fruit throughout. Texture-wise, the cake rusk was crisp like a regular rusk. It has a softer bite in comparison, paired with a crumbly texture as you chew.
In terms of taste, this hit all the correct spots! The sweetness was well-balanced. You’d think the candied fruits and sugar would make the sweetness unbearable, but that was not the case. The salt cuts right through the sweetness, balancing the flavors out. The candied fruits taste add a unique sweetness with light chewiness.
Unlike classic rusk, cake rusk can be had without tea or milk too. But as promised, we performed a dunk test with a glass of warm milk. On dunking for exactly three seconds, we observed the cake rusk had softened ever so slightly, but it didn’t break or turn too soggy.
