Misugaru & Orange Biscotti

Misugaru (미숫가루) is a traditional Korean powder that contains an array of grains.Such grains include, rice, soy beans, barley and corn to name a few, which are then roasted and grounded together, giving it a nutty, rich flavour. Misugaru  is commonly used in hot and cold drinks, for breakfast and is noted for its super healthy benefits.

I was lucky enough to be given a box of Misugaru from my boyfriend in Korea and decided to add this wonderful powder for baking and I have to admit it does give baked goods a filling, nutty flavour.

Although this ingredient is not a common product in the UK, it can be found in Asian stores and in particular Korean food stores.

Misugaru & Orange Biscotti Recipe:

200g Plain Flour

1 tsp Baking Powder

50g Misugaru flour

250g Sugar

1 or 2 Eggs, Beaten

Zest & juice of 1 Orange or Orange liqueur

100g Chopped nuts (I used almonds & pecan)

  1. Preheat oven to 170c/ 150c /gas 3 and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl mix together flour, misugaru, sugar, baking powder and zest until evenly combined.
  3. Add juice of orange slowly, followed by the beaten egg until mixture forms into a soft dough. Add another egg if mixture is still dry.
  4. Lightly dust work surface with flour and knead mixture.
  5. Divide into two, and shape into 15 cm log.
  6. Place on baking tray and cook for 25 minutes.
  7. Once cooked, take out of oven and let it cool slightly.
  8. With a serrated knife cut the biscuit into diagonal slices.
  9. Place back into the oven and cook for around 7 mins. Then turn them over and cook for another 7 mins.  Place on a wire rack and cool down.

Variation: Make this vegan by replacing egg with vegetable  or coconut oil.
