3) Vanilla Affogato and breakfast biscotti
A very simple recipe using the vanilla flavoured Wheyhey with a shot of espresso poured over and served with a biscotti on the side.
Difficulty level 1
One small tub of Wheyhey
One single shot of hot espresso
For the Biscotti
250g plain white flour
250g caster sugar
7 egg whites, beaten
220g shelled pistachio nuts
10ml vanilla extract
To make the biscotti:
1. Heat your oven to 180°C for a non-fan oven (preferable) or to 160°C fan or gas mark 4. Line a baking tray with baking parchment or silicone paper
2. Mix the flour and sugar together in a bowl. Stir in the beaten egg whites, a little at a time, making sure each addition is fully incorporated before adding the next. Continue until you have a firm dough. It may not be necessary to add all of the egg and the dough shouldn’t be at all sticky.
3. Roughly chop the pistachios and hazelnuts and add them to the biscotti dough. Mix these ingredients into the dough with your hands until they are evenly incorporated.
4. Once you have added your flavourings, turn the biscotti dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently, then divide in half.
5. Roll each piece of dough into a long log, about 4cm in diameter. Place both logs on your lined baking tray, spacing them at least 5cm apart as the mixture will spread a bit. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes.
6. Leave the logs to cool on the tray for 10 minutes to allow the dough to firm up slightly, then transfer to a board. Cut the logs, on the diagonal, into 2-3cm thick slices.
7. Place the slices, cut side up, on the baking tray. Return to the oven for 20-30 minutes, or until the biscotti are dry through to the centre, turning them over halfway through. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely. These biscotti keep well in an airtight container for 2 weeks
Place the ice-cream into a large cup
Pour the espresso shot over the ice cream
Dip in the biscotti and enjoy!
