Sweet Almond Bread

Rated as 4.25 out of 5 Stars

"The crunchy toasted almonds and sweet cinnamony topping on these round loaves make them look and taste terrific. 'My niece shared this recipe with me a few years ago, and I adapted it to use the dough setting on my bread machine,' notes Sally Ball of Gladwin, Michigan. 'It's delicious as a breakfast bread or served warm with ice cream.'"

  1. In bread machine pan, place dough ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed). When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a floured surface and punch down. Divide dough in half. Roll each portion into a 6-in. circle and place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, for topping, combine butter, sugar, milk, cinnamon and salt in a small saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until butter is melted. Simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat; cool for 5 minutes. Make a 1/4-in. depression in the center of each loaf with the tip of a wooden spoon. Brush with butter mixture and sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 375 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes. Serve warm.
