A  festive variation on our biscotti recipe!

Gorgeous Joanna of Zeb Bakes sent me a bottle of Aroma Panettone, a new product from Bakery Bits.  It was perfect in this recipe, although orange extract or orange blossom water (acqua fior d’arancio) would probably work as well (please adjust quantities accordingly).

I followed the methodology in our previous post, using the following ingredients:

  • 2½ cups (375g) plain (AP) flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • ¼ teaspoon fine salt (preferably sea salt)
  • ½ teaspoon Aroma Panettone
  • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
  • 3 large (59g) eggs
  • 1 cup (140g) coarsely chopped nuts (I used slivered almonds)
  • ½ cup (100g) dark Belgian chocolate (Callebaut 70%)
  • ½ cup mixed chopped glacé fruit (I used red and green cherries, figs and cedro)
  • 1 egg, beaten,  for eggwash
  • demerara or crystallised sugar

Here are the logs after the first bake, ready for slicing…

…and the finished biscotti.  They’ll make a wonderful addition to our Christmas mini-hampers!
