Basic Biscotti


Author: Aušra

Date:

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.

Basic Biscotti

Time needed:
Yields: 40 units
Calories: 86 kcal / unit

Ingredients:
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

Directions:

  • 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!

Muffins with rhubarbs and walnuts

At last this hear I grew some rhubarbs. And baked this muffins in June, but they appear on my blog only now. Sorry 🙂 These muffins are soft and I recommendto bake them in paper forms. I sprinkled some with cinnamon mixture, some didn’t. My hubby decided that with cinnamon is better. And I, cinnamon lover, can’t disagree with him 🙂

Potato bread

At last I found bread that my hubby really enjoyed eating it 🙂 Yeah… For long time I baked only bread without the crust. But now I have big hopes that we will make a break with it and start baking this potato bread. By the way, the taste of this bread is slightly similar to “švilpikai” 🙂

Rhubarb pie

This year at last we planted rhubarb in our garden ? No one missed it, just me. This year it was young, so I used it all in this pie. Everything was in its place – mild sourness, a little bit of sweetness. Hmmm we liked it very much 🙂

Chocolate butter cookies

I chose them because in the recipe it was written that they don’t spread. Yes, it’s correct. But I expected more crunchy, and they were soft. But they hole the form very well and are really delicious. I gave them as a present in my job. They disappeared in minutes 🙂 And I was asked for the recipes.

Sour milk muffins

Weekend 🙂 and at last I had time carefully to look what’s in a fridge 🙂 And my eyes saw sour milk that will spoil very quickly if I won’t do anything. So I remembered not so long ago published Bea sour milk muffins. There was no time to think – just do. And now I’m sitting happy and satisfied with a cup of tea:)
