  • 250g Plain Flour
  • 150g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 75g Ground Almonds
  • 1/2 Tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 100g Pistachios, Roughly Chopped
  • Zest 1 Orange
  • 4 Tbsp Fresh Orange Juice


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper. Separate your eggs, retaining 1 yolk and 3 whites. Discard remaining 2 yolks.

  2. Combine the flour, sugar, ground almonds, bicarb and baking powder and sieve into a mixing bowl. Add the egg yolk, egg whites and orange juice to the dry ingredients, hand mix until well combined, should be a sticky consistency. Now add in your pistachios and orange zest, again hand mix to make sure they're well distributed throughout the dough.

  3. Half the mixture and shape into two logs, on your prepared baking tray. Bake for 30 minutes.

  4. Remove from the oven and let cool until you can handle it. Cut each log into 1cm diagonal slices. Lay each slice on the baking tray and return to the oven for a further 8-10 minutes. They should be browned around the outside but still pale in the centre (reference picture), but throughly dried out for that classic biscotti *SNAP*

I have made biscotti several times so am aware how the mixture should perform. But with this recipe the mixture is far too runny, even after adding almost double the flour to try and stiffen it up the mixture was still too runny to shape into a log - you can barely get it off your fingers - and of course tasted mainly of flour!!! So disappointing and what a waste of ingredients.
