150 gr self-rising flour

Step 2: Method!

Picture of Method!

1. Preheat your oven on 180°C ( 350 F ) for 10 minutes. I always use a fan oven. Adjust your oven to the right temperature.

2. Roast your pecan nuts in a dry pan on low-heat until your pecans turn brown on all sides & your house will smell amazing! Lower the heat if you need to! Watch them closely! Turn heat off & remove the pan. Place your pecans on a chopping board & cut up. 3. Take a large bowl & add sugar, molasses & orange zest. Mix & add beaten eggs. Whisk it all together until foamy! 4. Now, add softened butter & mix well. Take a sieve & place it above the bowl. Sift cacao powder & self-rising flour! Mix gently! Finally, fold in the chopped pecans. 5. Make the dough. Take your kitchen counter & scatter some flour over it. Place your sticky dough on here, flour your hands & rolling-pin too! Divide your dough into long rolls. Flatten them a bit with your hand palms. Place the longer rolls on 2 clean Silpats or on baking sheets on 2 oven racks & bake for about 20 minutes in the hot oven. Now, take them out & let them cool down for about 10 minutes on the Silpats or on the baking sheets. Place the rolls on a chopping board & cut into 0.5 cm to 1 cm thick slices. Carefully remove to a wire rack to cool down completely! Enjoy with a god café latte or some nice tea! xxx
