Mix in the toasted almonds and put batter into prepared pan. Bake for 45 minutes, or until set in the center.

This is easy to make and the icing with it adds a lot to the flavor. The time and/or temperature seems to be off. Other than that, this is very good.

THIS TASTES DELICIOUS! This came out really crumbly for me but my whole family loved the flavor SO MUCH I still gave it five stars.

Smells Like Salad

You post the best quick bread recipes, Mikekey! I love that the almonds are toasted first. It only enhances the flavor. As usual, I baked the bread as two "mini-loaves" and sorry to say that I skipped the glaze for the simple reason that I dislike glaze. A glaze does add a pretty presentation though-that I will admit! Served for elevenses with tea, watermelon and peaches. Perfect! Prepared for CQ 2017/Scandinavia. :)
