So is biscotti actually bread?
I just made some biscotti from a recipe I concocted by reviewing many different recipes. I was looking for a way to use my sourdough starter discard. I ended up with a very wet dough that I needed to shape with a wet bench scraper into the logs. The final product is actually almost good.The next rendition will be better. Plus my shaping was atrocious-much too large.I didn't expect them to rise as much as they did.
But I'm still curious what category everyone thinks biscotti belongs in.Perhaps a sweet/quick bread is the closest category by the ingredients and how they are blended.It is flour,water,sugar,leavener (baking soda or powder),usually eggs,sometimes oil/fat,flavorings in the form of extracts,fruit, or chocolate.
