For this month's egg less bakingchallenge, Gayathri selected a recipe Called Orange Blossom Biscotti from baking obsession.com. in her introduction she had said that,” Biscotti is one recipe I couldn't get perfect while doing egg less version.” The idea Gayathri had was we can bookmark the best one and this can be used in future.
I must say that she does have a point; there are many things that went wrong in my biscotti.
My troubles started with pre-heating I put the butter paper on the tray, greased it and preheated. Since we had guest at that particular moment the only way I came to know about my blunder was when the strong burnt smell seeped in the living room.
Luckily it had not caught fire, but that was my last butter paper and being a Sunday close to lunch time I had no chance of getting more butter paper. So this time I had to line with a foil. End result was loaves underside resembled charcoal. Then the two loaves that I had made as they were baking thought I was a cruel lady, separating the two lovers so they decided to meet half way. I got no height or the lovely biscotti looks. In fact I had to cut them in half to make the few decent pieces that I got.
You will think after all these ranting that the biscotto was not worth baking. Yes? No you are wrong.
The biscotti I carried home when I went to my father’s place. At my insistence Pappa ate it. Do you know what he said, “You baked this? I tastes like it is professionally made.”
This is the best compliment he has paid me so far…:)
