You can vary the fillings to suit in this traditional biscotti. Our top picks are macadamias, walnuts and chocolate chunks!


  • 2 eggs (we recommend Pams Free Range)
  • 1 cup Pams White Sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups Pams Pure Plain Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Pams Baking Powder
  • ¾ cup Pams Fruit Cake Mix
  • 70g Pams Sliced Almonds
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten (we recommend Pams Free Range)


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar together until pale and creamy.
  3. Add the combined flour and baking powder and mix well. Mix in the fruit cake mix and almonds.
  4. Turn out and knead the dough a little to make sure the fruit and nuts are incorporated. Divide the dough in half and form 2 logs.
  5. Place the logs on a baking paper lined tray, brush with the egg white and bake for 30 minutes. Make sure it doesn’t colour too quickly.
  6. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes and then slice into thin slices – a bread knife is best for this!
  7. Arrange the slices in a single layer on a baking tray and bake for a further 15 minutes until the biscotti is dry and firm.
  8. Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.

Makes 20 slices.

These truffles can be made well ahead of time and frozen until needed. Thaw at room temperature for an hour or so and dust with cocoa ahead of serving.
