Here's a Jewish treat very similar to biscotti called mondel brodt. It's delicious and not too sweet, great served with coffee or tea.

Serves: 20 

  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (185g) white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons orange essence
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 1/2 cups (250g) plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 165 degrees C.
  2. In a large bowl whip eggs and sugar until light. Mix in the orange essence and oil. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the egg mixture along with the walnuts. Form dough into 4 logs and place them 8cm apart onto an ungreased baking tray; flatten slightly.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Remove to a cutting board and slice each log into 2cm wide diagonal slices with a serrated knife. Return the slices to the baking tray, cut side down.
  4. Return the slices to the oven and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until toasted.
