Serves 16


  • 200g plain flour

  • 200g caster sugar

  • 2 med eggs

  • 100g whole almonds

  • zest of 1 orange

  • pinch of salt


  1. Mix together the flour, sugar and baking powder into a mixing bowl/kitchen aid.

  2. Add the grated zest of an orange, then the eggs.

  3. Using the paddle attachment, mix until you have a soft dough.

  4. Tip out onto your work surface, dust with flour, and gently knead to form a soft ball.

  5. Work the almonds into the dough, then cut into two equal amounts, roll each ball into a sausage shape of equal length, approx 8"/ 20cm.

  6. Put the dough onto a baking tray, spaced well apart as it swells a lot when baking, put in the centre of the oven and bake for 40min at 150°c.

  7. The biscotti will be golden after this time. Take out and leave till cool enough to handle.

  8. Using a serrated knife, cut into slices 1cm thick and bake for a further 10mins until biscuits have dried out.

  9. Leave to cool.
