Happy Holidays my fellow foodies! I hope you are able to take some time to enjoy family, friends, and of course food!
I got the idea of this simple dessert from a cookbook but I’ve modified it slightly, see below:
Ingredients: 2 c. whole almonds, 2 eggs, 1 tblsp soy milk, 1 c. sugar, 1/2 c. butter
Grind the almonds in a food processor or I’m sure you can buy ground almonds somewhere if you really wanted to.
In a bowl, mix the ground almonds and sugar together. Melt the butter and pour it over the dry ingredients. Mix it all together really well.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and milk together. Then, combine it with the almond mixture.
Preheat oven to 340. Grease a bread pan and pour the mixture inside. Bake for about 45 min. Check with a knife to see if it comes out clean.
Have you ever had baklava? It tastes almost like that sweet nutty taste minus the pastry part. It’s soo good and you can have it cold or hot. I prefer hot with a scoop of ice cream. I’ve also had it for breakfast with some hot tea (see below).
Last year my holiday song of 2014 was Santa Tell Me from Ariana Grande. This year my favorite holiday song of 2015 is….Sleigh Ride by the Pentatonix! I have so much respect for a cappella music and they are one of the best out there right now..the way they blend and how each song is arranged is simply amazing.
I know it came out last year but I still love everything about this Christmas album.
Thank you for reading and following my tiny little blog this year! Have a happy holidays and happy new year, 2016 will be the best one yet!
