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!

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!
I bake this bread more then a year. But as always, the best recipes hardly reach the blog 🙂 Because I bake it very often and know all ingredients in my head. This bread is perfect. Really 🙂 After founding this bread I don’t buy any bread at store. Or maybe just in big gatherings when I don’t have time to bake more of this bread. 🙂
One day I had a strong feeling that I just have to bake something for my co-workers. So I told my hubby that he has to look after our children till they get asleep and went to the kitchen. We tasted this coffee cake the next day. And it tasted very good, so until lunch the coffee cake was gone.
I baked this challah a lot of times, because I just love it. The last time I baked it I prepared the dough and to rise the first time I put it in a fridge for the night. The next morning I took it out, formed challah and let rise it the second time, then baked it. So that morning we had delicious breakfast with still warm challah.
I have no time to do nothing 🙂 My job is taking all my time. Good news that it will not last forever. So I have no time to bake cookies or pies, but it doesn’t stop me from wanting some sweets. And these cookies are perfect – you can form a log and then put in a freezer for later bake, when you will have no spare time.
