This is my first post! Every time I make this cake people beg me for the recipe. Its adapted from an authentic Italian recipe and it's incredibly quick and easy to make. It uses everyday ingredients (omit the Amaretto if you don't have any) and the result is a moist, almost pudding-like cake which is full of flavour. Perfect for a decadent afternoon tea or to serve as a dessert. Hope you like it!
I find any excuse possible to serve this. Great around the holidays but worthy of being made all year round. It is the dish I am most often asked to bring to a gathering requiring finger foods or appetizers. Really good on Townhouse Wheat Crackers. If I don't have any orange juice concentrate, I use just enough fresh squeezed juice to make it the right consistency and the zest from the orange for more flavor. *PLEASE NOTE!!* You REALLY need to make this ahead of time! The flavors must blend for it to taste good!
I have been using this method for 30 years, no more thin runny whipped cream and your whipping cream will hold up for days this, is fabulous on cakes --- for 2 cups whipping cream use 2 tsp gelatin in 2 tbsp cold water.
This is from recipegoldmine.com. I was looking for Nutella recipes and no one has posted this one. I made a variation of this with walnuts instead of hazelnuts and didn't roll in nuts just the confecioners sugar. They turned out great but I did find I had to bake them about 15 minutes to get the middle done and to crackle on top. I didn't count my cookies so maybe I made them too big. I think you could make them with any nuts you have on hand, the Nutella flavour is still there.UPDATE..In the picture I made them with hazelnuts but I didn't notice any difference in taste than when I made them with walnuts. Walnuts I get free and hazelnuts are so expensive to buy.
After many years of experimentation, I think these are the best biscotti I've ever made. They are nice and dry and crunchy the way real biscotti should be - they are not cookie-like like many you buy in the store these days. They are perfect for dipping, they have a long shelf-life, they are delicious and flavorful. My toddler LOVES them and even asks for them before bed with a cup of milk for dipping. Another great recipe from Alice Medrich.
