A friend has a very old family recipe for a soft anise biscotti first baked in cake form

about anything like that?

Hi Lori,

Well, I looked at a lot of biscotti recipes this morning. I saw a few that are formed into strips before the first bake, but not many. Most of the recipes that I saw called for forming the dough into one or two "logs" before the first baking, then slicing and toasting for the second bake. Since you say "cake" rather than "log" or "roll', I kept looking and I found these, which are baked in loaf cake pans, then sliced and toasted:

I'm not sure what makes a "cake" different from a "log" unless it is being baked in a pan.

Additionally, there are many biscotti recipes that use actual cake mix to make the batter. These are baked as cakes, then sliced and toasted to make biscotti. Most of these are vanilla or chocolate or fruit-flavored, but I did find this one:

None of these may be the exact recipe that your friend has, but I would have to have some sort of unique identifier to find her exact recipe, such as a unique English or Italian name for that kind of biscotti or other unique identifier to separate it from all the other similar biscotti recipes.
