A karask is a buttery quick bread made with barley and wheat flours. Traditionally enjoyed right out of the oven with butter and honey or cranberry cream, these Estonian scones are eaten for breakfast or snacks. Incredibly, this bread tastes even richer the next day, when it is commonly served with lingonberry preserves. Recipe Servings: Serves 4
