One day when me and my colleague drinking afternoon coffee/tea talked about sweets. And she mentioned that she likes biscotti. At that time I just read about them but didn’t try to bake by myself. So I said that next time when we meet (we meet only once in a week) I will bring my first biscotti.
I have not one biscotti recipe, but for the first time I decided to bake the simplest kind – basic. I was afraid that simple ones look like rusk, so I decorated them with dark and white chocolate. At the office, we laugh that I brought them rusks but anyway biscotti disappeared quickly. And for afternoon tea/coffee there were only a few biscotti left.
Yields: 40 units
Calories: 86 kcal / unit
1 cup = 237 ml
- 3 1/4 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla sugar
- Preheat oven to 190°C and line baking tray with baking paper.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. In a smaller bowl, combine the oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla sugar. Pour the liquid mixture into the flour and mix well, forming a stiff dough. Divide the dough in half, then form the halves into logs as long as the baking sheet and flatten slightly. Bake until golden brown and firm, about 25-30 minutes.
- Let the logs cool slightly, about a half hour. Cut them into 1cm slices and arrange them on the baking sheets. Bake again for 10 minutes, flipping the slices halfway through, until they’re golden brown around the edges.
- Let cool completely, then you can decorate them, or just store in an airtight container up to 2 weeks.
- Enjoy with a cup of tea!

It’s easy and quick dinner. I’ve tried to make crepes with ham and cheese filling before, but I missed something. And when I tried this recipe I understood, that this is it I was looking for. And the secret ingredient to success is mayonnaise.
Very delicious cake. I never have a chance to photo it because every time it disappears very quickly. It”s so juicy, not dry at all. And my husband can eat almost half of the pie at once 🙂
Yes, I still have pumpkin puree 🙂 And this time it’s not so healthy but very chocolate brownie. It’s really easy, just I baked 10 minutes more. The next time, I will bake only 5 minutes more. And also, when I baked it second time I used less sugar, and my big girl tasted that. My hubby also agreed that brownie second time was not so good as the first time. So the third time I won’t change anything – these proportions are really perfect!
One more cake with zucchini. Really great and moist. I didn”t have chocolate chips, but I didn”t miss them in the cake. Maybe with these chips the cake would be more delicious, but also more sinful 🙂
Very delicious cake and zucchini just gives a lot of moistness. I baked it five times this summer and every day it disappeared very quickly. At last I left some cake for photography and next day when I had a little bit free time I made some photos. By the way, the cake had a lot of moistness even after a few days.
