September Punch and the Pound Cake Round-up

It is time to punch again!!Wonder where the last month went by,is it only me or is it the same with you gals?I am yet to compile the round-up for last month and it is already late for this month's challenge announcement..sigh!

This month,as all of you may know is the Swiss Roll/Roulade month.I had to skip this challenge last year because  a)I didn't have a swiss roll tin and b)my oven is not big enough for one.This year is no different and I didn't want to pick a recipe and end up not doing it myself.So there is a twist.I discussed it with Ria and we decided to do a different recipe this month.

I have chosen Chocolate Almond Biscotti from Joy of Baking.The recipe is quite simple to put together but would be a first for me.I have not attempted a Biscotti ever before and believe it would be exciting to try out something new.

Biscotti is a traditional Italian biscuit which is twice-baked.Biscotti is made dry and crunchy through cutting the loaf of dough while still hot and fresh from baking in the oven."Biscotti" is the only traditional name, which in the Italian language is the plural form of biscotto. The word originates from the medieval Latin word biscoctus, meaning "twice-cooked/baked." It defined oven baked goods that were baked twice, so they were very dry and could be stored for long periods of time.[source]
