Mama Maria’s Italian Almond Toast

Thank you Maria for sharing this wonderful recipe with me!  This Italian recipe comes via Australia.

Preheat your oven to 350F  or 325F, if using your convection oven.

2 eggs

1/2 cup white sugar

In a bowl, combine 2 eggs with 1/2 cup of sugar. Mix well.

Add:

1/2 cup white flour

1/2 cup self-rising flour

1 cup whole almonds, preferably blanched

1 tsp. vanilla or almond extracts

Pour into a lightly oiled or sprayed loaf pan ( what works really well is an old metal ice-cube tray).  Bake for 30 – 35 minutes.

Remove from the oven and cool overnight. Slice into thin slices, (approximately 1/8th inch) and rebake on cookie sheets for 5 minutes.  Watch carefully and remove when turning light brown (slightly toasted).

imageNote: if you do not have self-rising flour, just add 1 tsp. baking powder to 1 cup of the white flour.
