Chocolate Biscotti

Who doesn't love chocolates? I wanted to open my pack of cocoa powder for making something, but at first, I thought of using it in mocha only ;) Planned to bake chocolate cake several times, but didn't do that as well... Meanwhile, I came across a page where I read a monthly challenge posted for home bakers!!!

Immediately sent a request to join 'Baking Partners' group... And I received a confirmation email too within 24 hours by Swathi :) I would like to thank her for including me in this challenge...

Now being a part of this group, I was supposed to bake any/all of the given International goodies! I planned to make 2 of them but somehow couldn't manage the other one :(

Here is a recipe of eggless 'Italian Chocolate Biscotti' that I tried for the 1st time in my home-bakery!!!

Makes: 7-8 (1 log)


1 cup All-purpose Flour (Maida)
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
1/4 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup Oil
A pinch of Salt
Water, as required


- Sieve maida, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder in a big bowl.
- Add rest of all ingredients in it and mix well.
- Knead a soft dough by adding water gradually into it. 
- Prepare a log out of it and arrange it on a lined baking tray.
- Bake it in pre-heated oven on 180° for around 20 mins. Then after, transfer it to a cooling rack and let it cool down to room temp.
- Cut the log into slices of your preferred thickness. 
- Bake them again in pre-heated oven for 10 more mins.
- Serve with a cuppa tea or coffee!!! 


- Once it's cooled down to room temp, can be kept in air-tight container for a week long.
- Add a fistful of almonds (or your choice of nuts) to add more crunchiness n flavors!
