- 50g Pine Nuts
- 50g Dark Chocolate Chips
- ½ tsp Baking Powder
- 1tsp Cinnamon
- 120g Plain Flour
- 7tsp Castor Sugar (approx. 9g)
- 1 large Egg
- 1 large Mixing Bowl
- 1 Small Mixing Bowl
- Baking Tray
- Electric Whisk (it is possible to use a hand whisk but is much harder to use).
- Lightly grease a baking tray (I use one with no sides as it makes it easier to get the biscuit off, when cooked).
- Pre-heat the Oven to Gas Mark 4 or 175/155(Fan) degrees celsius.
- Add the sugar to a large mixing bowl.
- Mix together all of the other dry ingredients (except the sugar) in a small mixing bowl and then stir to aerate (the flour can also be sifted into the small mixing bowl if wanted).
- Add the egg to the large mixing bowl and then mix until the mixture is thick and has a light cream colour.
- Add the dry ingredients and then fold them in with a knife until you have a dough like mixture.
- Place the biscuit dough onto the baking tray and make into a flattened rectangular sausage about 1cm thick and 10cm wide (these measurements are just approximate and as long as it is even it should cook nicely).
- Place into the oven for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes take the biscuit out of the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes.
- Take the biscuit off the baking tray, be gentle as it is very delicate at this point, and place it onto a cutting board. Cut the biscuit into 1-1.5cm wide strips (careful the chocolate is still hot).
- Put the biscuits back onto the baking tray (I use the grill pan) and put them back into the oven for approx. 8 minutes.
- Take the biscuits out of the oven and let cool. Dunk in your coffee as required.
