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!

Tender apple cake

I still have apples and they are shouting that I have to make something from them before I have to throw them away. I chose this recipe because I had some vanilla sauce and in the recipe it was suggested to eat it with ice creams. Children like the cake even without the sauce.

Cookies Puppies

At last I made these little puppies too. My daughter asked to give her something that she could treat her kindergarten group children. So good mother rolled up her sleeves and started to word ? This work was only pleasure. Of course it needed some time but these puppies are really worth it.

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 🙂
