Fig & Walnut Wafers

pict0043This wafer is similar to a biscotti in it’s ingredients and method of baking but sliced very thin after the first baking so that it can be eaten like a cheese biscuit. of course it can also be eaten with a coffee or tea since it is slightly sweet. I personally find that it goes really well with a blue vein cheese or a hard Italian cheese and a glass aromatic white wine. Perfect pre dinner nibbles!





Make about 40 wafers

2 eggs,
1/2 cup caster sugar,
1 cups (190g) flour, sifted,
½ cup walnuts,
½ cup figlets, remove stalks

Method – stage one

  • Preheat the oven to 160 degrees centigrade. 
  • Line a loaf tin with baking paper. 
  • Whisk eggs and sugar until creamy. 
  • Fold in flour, walnuts and figlets, gently. If you over mix the dough will become to dense. 
  • Spoon the mixture in the tin and bake for 45 minutes or until lightly coloured. 
  • Cool on a baking rack and then rest in fridge  overnight.

Method – stage two

  • The following day (or at least several hours later after resting in fridge), preheat oven to 160 centigrade. 
  • Slice the loaf thinly and arrange on baking trays lined with greaseproof paper. 
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  •  Cool on a baking rack and serve!
