This passover I made Mandel bread for the first time ever. I made one with almonds and one with chocolate chips.
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 1/2 cups cake meal
- 1 cup chopped almonds (or 1 cup chocolate chips)
- sugar & cinnamon to sprinkle over
In the mixer I beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. The eggs will take on a pale yellow color.
To try and fix the problem I raised the rack and the next two batches did not burn. After it comes out of the oven you slice it on the diagonal immediately (it looks like biscotti). Then put back into the overn for 10 to 15 minutes. Every 5 minutes I flipped over the mandel bread.
It went over very well at the Seder. The chocolate was much more popular than the almond, but both kind were delicious.
