HozOboz offers today to get acquainted with a detailed recipe in order to bake a delicious weightless chiffon biscuit on your own. You should know that the chiffon biscuit, the recipe of which is given below, was created much later than the classic biscuit, which is simpler and heavier.
The first written mention of biscuits can be found, oddly enough, in English ship's logs. Sailors of the Royal Navy took care of their rations by filling their holds before sailing with a variety of non-perishable products, among which was the so-called "biscuit bread". That was the name of the dried biscuit, especially valued by sailors for its ability to retain its properties for a long time in a humid environment without becoming moldy. Such qualities of biscuits were ensured by the absence of animal fats and yeast in their composition. The history of the name remains a mystery to this day. Why was this airy dough called "twice-baked" (this is how this word is translated from Old French: "bis" - twice, again, "cuit" - oven)?
The word is similar to the Italian biscotti, but the product has nothing to do with the name of the cookie, which is actually baked twice. In Italy itself, biscuits are called "genoese", but these are special biscuits, oily. Based on the French name, France may be the birthplace of the first product made from such a dough, but in England it is customary to use double names for many products, as, for example, a cake is often called not "cake", but "gateaux". Therefore, Foggy Albion could give us such baked goods that are in demand all over the world. At the very least, we owe them the popularization of biscuits.
Somehow, one courtier wanted to taste food from the diet of the ship's crew during a sea voyage. The biscuit bread particularly impressed the lady, and she decided to suggest its use in the royal kitchen. The confectioners serving then-reigning Queen Victoria were at the height of their creativity, coming up with more and more desserts for five-hour tea parties. Adding layers of jam and cream, nut and chocolate spreads, fondants, glazes and sprinkles to biscuits has made the originally delicious biscuit bread a tempting delicacy for more than one century. Who can resist Boucher cake, Danish biscuit roll, Sacher cake, truffle cake and more? All these confectionery products are made from biscuit dough. Therefore, we can say "bravo" to the one who first thought of mixing eggs, sugar and flour in such a way as to get a biscuit when baking.
To get a guaranteed result when baking a chiffon biscuit (recipe with photo), you should follow strict instructions. It is especially important to accurately weigh all products as indicated in the recipe. Deviations in grams can lead to a distortion of the intended taste, so get an accurate kitchen scale when you start kneading the chiffon biscuit according to the hozOboz recipe.
When it comes to following a strict diet, it is very difficult to find benefits in eating biscuits. But you can also think about the pleasure of endorphins, especially if you make a chocolate chiffon biscuit with praline from
macadamia in chocolate velor. Chiffon biscuits are lighter, so you'll get fewer calories than you'd get from a Genoese biscuit or a regular diner muffin. In addition to pleasure, you will get a quick energy boost, thanks to the rapid absorption of carbohydrates. Therefore, spend the received calories with pleasure - go for a walk in the park, swim in the sea or pool, dance! Moreover, after delicious pastries and cakes, there must be an appropriate mood for this!
