Mandelbrot (Almond Bread) Recipe

Step 1

Beat the eggs and sugar together until thick. Add the oil and vanilla and mix well. Stir in the flour, baking powder and almonds. Pour the batter into a lightly oiled and floured 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan just to cover the bottom of the pan.

Step 2

Sprinkle on the cinnamon. Add another layer of batter and cinnamon. Continue until all the batter and cinnamon are used.

Step 3

Bake in 350 F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Bread will be dense. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack. Cut into 1/2 inch slices when ready to serve. Place each slice on a lightly oiled baking sheet and toast in a 400 F oven for 5 to 6 minutes. (My note - warm briefly in microwave.)

1/2 inch slice - 55 calories, 1/2 fruit exchange + 1/2 fat exchange 6 grams carbohydrate, 1 gram protein, 3 grams fat, 13 mg sodium, 11 mg potassium, 44 mg cholesterol.
