  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Combine flour, cocoa, caster sugar and baking powder in a large bowl and mix well. In a separate bowl combine eggs, orange rind and macadamias and mix well. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, pour in the egg mixture and stir to form a dough.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide in half. Shape halves into logs, place on a greased and floured baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and when cool enough to handle cut logs into 0.5cm thick slices. Place slices on baking sheets and bake a further 10 – 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack then store in an air tight container.
