Makes: 48 biscotti

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 1/4 cups plain flour

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C. Grease a baking tray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oil, sugar, eggs and molasses. In another bowl, combine flours, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg; mix into egg mixture to form a stiff dough.
  3. Divide dough in half and shape each half into a roll the length of the biscotti. Place rolls on the baking tray and pat down to flatten the dough to about 1cm thickness.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  5. When cool enough to touch, cut into 1cm thick diagonal slices. Place sliced biscotti back on baking tray and bake an additional 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until toasted and crispy.
