The perfect match with that nice cup of coffee! Biscocho or biskotso is a Filipino type of snack usually served with coffee made with twice baked bread coated with butter and sugar.
An Instagram friend of mine from the Asian in America Mag posted this biscocho photo and reminds me of the days where I had this paired with coffee back in the Philippines, I never had made them at home as I thought it would be a laborious process. She then gave me a tip of using a store-bought butter cake , spread some butter and bake it in a low temperature oven until crisp. That’s what I exactly did and indeed it was simple, although we don’t have commercial plain butter cake here in New Zealand, what we do have here are trifle cakes similar to chiffon or sponge cake which I used and they were perfect for this recipe. Thanks Mrs Betty Ann Quirino, for the tip, now I can make biscocho whenever I want to.
Biscocho or biskotso also called machacao, or matsakaw in other places is a type of Filipino twice-baked breads, usually coated with butter and sugar, a recipe that was inherited from the Spanish bizcocho but the similarity ends with the name as the Spanish pasty is a type of cake, the Philippine one on the other hand came from a cake then made crunchy.
