Almond Wreath


  • flour
  • 2 cakes of yeast
  • 1 pint of luke warm milk
  • 1 tablespoonful of salt
  • 6 ounces of butter
  • 6 ounces of pulverized sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 pint of rich cream
  • 1/2 pound of sweet almonds


Take 2 ounces of flour, the yeast, luke warm milk, salt. Mix into a light sponge and let it rise all night. In the morning add the butter, pulverized sugar, eggs, rich cream and enough flour to make a soft dough. Let it rise again until very light. Then roll out with few and swift strokes of the rolling-pin into a sheet less than half an inch thick and cut into strips. Braid these into a coronet about some round object in the center. Or you may make it into a round cake if you like. Shell the sweet almonds, blanch and shred them and dry in the oven for a few minutes. Then mix them with granulated and coffee sugar and cinnamon and strew over the cakes when you have washed the surface with white of egg to make the mixture stick. Bake in a moderate oven. This quantity will make at least six large cakes.
