by Febin V


  • 150 Grams Butter
  • ¾ Cups Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ Cups Plain flour
  • ¼ Teaspoons Baking powder
  • ¼ Teaspoons Salt
  • ⅓ Cups Ground Almond
  • ¼ Cups Cocoa powder
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Get all your ingredients ready.

    Step 2

    Beat butter till soft and fluffy.

    Step 3

    Add sugar and beat.

    Step 4

    Add egg and vanilla extract and beat.

    Step 5

    Step 6

    Add flour, baking powder and salt.

    Step 7

    Combine the crumbly mixture with your hands to form a smooth dough.

    Step 8

    Divide in half(sorry no photo), add almond flour and mix well.

    Step 9

    To the other half, add the cocoa powder and mix.

    Step 10

    You end up with two balls of dough - almond and cocoa.

    Step 11

    Between two sheets of parchment paper, roll the dough out into a rectangle 1/4cm thick.

    Step 12

    Like this. Refrigerate without removing the parchment sheets for an hour.

    Step 13

    Do the same with the chocolate dough.

    Step 14

    Once chilled, remove the top layers of parchment paper. Place the chocolate layer on top of the plain one.

    Step 15

    Like this. Roll tightly along the long side. Use the paper to help you along. If the outer dough cracks, let it soften for a few minutes and roll.

    Step 16

    Wrap this log in the paper and refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours or overnight. The dough has to firm up well to be able to slice without altering the shape.

    Step 17

    Slice into 1/2 thick slices and bake in a 180C preheated oven for 10 minutes.

    Step 18
