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!

Maybe not the real ones but really tasty kibinai

Maybe not the real ones but really tasty kibinai

I must confess – I have never ate the real kibinai ? But this weekend we had some guests who likes kibinai a lot, and they said that these kibinai are very good (kibinai also agreed with guests “cause they disappeared from the plate very fast ? )

Lietiniai su brokoliais ir sūriu

Crepes stuffed with broccoli and cheese

I’m very excited when the recipe which I chose to prepare is admitted 110 percents. I wanted to make these crepes all week long, but all week I had no time to spend in the kitchen. And only this weekend the time has come 🙂 I’m very glad that I made only half portion because if there were more than four crepes I couldn’t stop eating. The filling is so light, with the gentle taste of broccoli and very nice taste of cheese. My hubby said he wasn’t hungry but ate one crepe and was very excited 🙂 The next time I will not make our usual crepes with cheese filling, but give a little bit more time and make these crepes.

Marmurinis moliūgų pyragas su kremine varške

Swirled pumpkin cream cheese cake

It looks like simple ordinary pumpkin cake, but special taste gives cream cheese. It takes cake to another level 🙂

Moliūginis pyragas su šokoladu ir riešutais

Pumpkin blondies with chocolate and pecans

It was the first time when cake dissapeared so quickly. And even more – almost everyone asked for the recipe. 🙂 I was really pleased. So I write down here the recipe without a queue (in the queue there are five more recipes).

Braškių ir rabarbarų pyragas

Strawberry and rhubarb cake

It’s very bad when you don’t write the recipe in the blog after you eat the cake 🙂 Then you have to look for the recipe for a few days. I baked this cake when we were going to the village and strawberries were still in the season. It had to be all strawberry, but I had no time so I use rhubarbs as they were near me. Rhubarb and strawberry combination isn’t new – it fits perfectly. And the texture of the cake is more like sponge than a teacake. I liked it very much.
