Almond Bread - Machine Recipe
1 cup milk
3 tbsp butter
8 oz almond paste -- 1/8 slices
2 1/2 cup flour -- not bread flour
2 tbsp sugar -- brown
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp yeast
1 tsp syrup -- corn
1 tsp water -- warm
1 almonds -- slivered

corn syrup and warm water and brush the top of the loaf with this
mixture, using a pastry brush. Sprinkle the slivered almonds over the
glaze, put the bread gently back in its pan, and return it to the
electronic oven for a few minutes to dry the glaze a bit.
