DIRECTIONS

  • Using 2 cups warm water dissolve yeast in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add all ingredients, except flour and almonds. Mix well.
  • Add 3 cups flour and beat till smooth.
  • Add almonds and enough additional flour till dough is easy to handle.
  • On a lightly floured board, knead bread till smooth.
  • Place in a greased bowl then turn 180 degrees to where the greased side is up, cover and let stand in a warm place.
  • When bread dough has risen and doubled in size (50-60 minutes), punch down and divide in half.
  • Form each half into a loaf and place each into greased bread pans. Let dough rise till doubled in size.
  • Bake at 350 degrees in a pre-heated oven for 40-45 minutes. Baking times may vary. To test, tap top of bread with finger. It should make a hollow sound. The loaves should look shiny and golden brown.
