I love biscotti and this is yet another version, this time lemon & poppy seed... and I must say it goes perfect with a cup of tea!
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla paste or extract
- 90g whole hazelnuts
- zest of a lemon
- 2tbsp poppy seeds
Beat and egg with sugar and vanilla until pale, add all remaining ingredients and mix by hand until all combined.
Shape into a loaf, about 25cm long, place on a lined baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for about 25 minutes until golden.
Leave the loaf aside to cool slightly, then cut diagonally into 1cm wide stripes.
Place back on the baking tray and bake for further 15-20 minutes.
Take out the oven and leave to cool.
