Almond Bread Variations

This recipe contains dairy products but no gluten. The result is a sliceable, toastable loaf, like a heavy pound cake. It can be made sweet or savory.

Ingredients

2 1⁄2 cups
almond flour
3
eggs
1⁄4 cup
ricotta or dry curd cottage cheese
1 teaspoon
aluminum-free baking soda (scant teaspoon)
1⁄4 teaspoon
salt
Yields:
servings

Additional Notes

Variations: Add a little stevia and some lemon zest or food-grade lemon oil. Add minced herbs such as rosemary or sage. Add 1/2 cup chopped dry fruit like raisins or apricots. Add caraway seeds for a result more like rye bread.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients except the almond flour in the food processor and process until thick and uniform. Add the almond flour and blend well. Butter and flour (with almond flour) a 4 x 8 loaf pan. Pour the dough in the loaf pan, and bake for about an hour or until it is a little brown on top and a knife inserted comes out clean. The top will crack a little. Allow to cool thoroughly. You can loosen the sides by moving a knife or spatula along the sides. Remove and finish cooling on a rack. The texture will not be right if you slice it before it is done cooling.
