Biscotti is a kind of cookie

That makes you wanna bite

Coz it is so crunchie

And taste good too, if you get it right.


Though it is not so buttery

It still taste yummy

Especially when you dunk it

In your favourite cup of coffee.


Making biscotti is quite easy

Just follow the recipe

Remember to set your timer

And watch the oven temperature.


You need to make a loaf

Then bake it till it rise

Take the loaf out

And cut it into slice.


In the oven again it goes

Bake till the slices are dry

The smell of chocolate in the air

Oh this you can’t deny.


Out from the oven, and off to cool

Whip your coffee and please don’t drool

Wait till biscotti is warm, if you can stand it

Then take a fat big piece and eat !



1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
a pinch of salt
3/4 cup of sugar
2 large eggs
3 tablespoon of vegetable oil
grated zest from one orange
1/2 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven at 180C.  In a bowl, mix the flour, cocoa, coffee powder, baking powder, soda and salt.   In another bowl, mix together the sugar, eggs, oil and grated zest.  You can use a mixer or just your hand.  Mix till smooth, for about 3 minutes.  Then add the wet ingredient to the dry ingredient.  Stir till all the flour is combine, then add the chocolate chip.  The dough will be quite sticky.  Divide into two and try make to make a loaf, the size of 7 inch x 2 inch in width.  You can shape the dough using your hand, rub some oil to make it easier.


Bake for 25 minutes, remove and place the logs onto a wire rack to let it cool.   You may off the oven now.


Wait for 15 minutes, then cut into slices using a serrated knife.  Don’t wait too long or the loaf will be too hard to cut.  Cut diagonally at about 1/2 inch thick.  Arrange so it doesn’t overlap.  Now on the oven again at 180C.  Bake the slices for 5 minutes.  Then turn the slices over and bake for another 5 minutes.  Do not overbake or you will end up with a very tough biscoti.

Once cool, keep in an airtight container.
