Jeena's Sweet Almond Bread

This is my very own Sweet Almond Bread Recipe! I treasure it because it tastes so good, I really really want you to try this! :)
Jeena's Dough Recipe No1

Jeena's Dough
approx 2-3 oz Ground Almond(I am so sorry I didn't measure it but I will Update this recipe because I will make it again very soon!)
1Medium Egg
Tbsp Set Honey
Tbsp Rice Flour
Seeds Half Vanilla Pod
Flaked Almonds
Sprinkle Light Brown Sugar (optional)
Honey to Spread

For the Filling

Because I didn't weigh the ground almonds (sorry) I would advise to add a bit at a time until it is the consistency of a thick batter.
Apart from the dough ,sugar and flaked almonds! Mix all the ingredients together well again it should look like a thick batter.

Now for the Main

Roll our the dough into a long flat oval.

Then spread allover with Honey.

Spoon the almond batter in a line in the middle of the dough length ways. Don't worry that it doesn't look even etc..... it is a thick batter after all.

Now fold in each end of the dough and then bring together each length ways edge and pinch down the middle.(like a Cornish pasty- I needed to hands so I have no picture sorry) It should look a little like a package... as long as your batter can't leak out it is OK.

Now brush with some melted healthy margarine/butter(you don't have to it just helps the almonds stick and oil is too savoury!) and sprinkle with lots of flaked almonds, then if you want to sprinkle with some sugar. Now cook it in a hot oven until Golden brown. It will take 10 - 15 minutes depending on your oven. Cut the end off to check if your uncertain.

Once cooked slice and serve.

Enjoy! :)

Hello Jeena, this almond bread recipe looks very nice and I can't wait to make it when I get back home :-)

I have been visiting your blog for over 3 weeks now and I think all your recipes look wonderful and very tasty and they all seem very healthy.

I have been looking for a blog like this for along time now and I have told lots of my friends to come and visit your blog.

I too might start a recipe blog although I don't think I could make food like you Jeena.

keep blogging Jeena as we love reading about your kitchen....maybe you check out my new blog.

Take care..from Angela over in Canada.
