        7. Assalaam alaikum,your cake rusk looks delicious n perfect. i want to try your recipe let me know pls can i use oil instead of butter. As you mentioned in recipe beat butter and caster sugar together. If i use oil then sugar use in caster or course. Waiting for your reply

          1. Walaikum Salam! Sorry for the late reply. Yes, you can use oil instead of butter and use caster sugar ( or finely ground sugar ). Also I would suggest a square pan as oil-based cake will be flatter. Check out this version with oil : Almond Cake Rusk

            Hope it turns out well. Let me know :)
