Mandel Bread or mandelbrot, which literally means almond bread is a Jewish  favorite especially during Hanukkah. Mandelbrot is similar to a biscotti but slightly softer. This can be enjoyed with a cup of coffee or tea. It can also be snacked in between dreidel games.

  • Combine 2/3 cup of oil, 1 cup sugar, and 2 eggs in a saucepan. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes while stirring continually.
  • Mix 2 1/2 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and one teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • Combine the egg and flour mixture. Stir with a spoon until well blended.
  • Put aluminum foil on a cookie sheet. Grease the cookie sheet.
  • Divide the dough into three logs. Flatten the logs a bit to create a flat loaf.
  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes, or until light brown.
  • You can sprinkle the Mandel bread with cinnamon sugar. You can also melt choco chips and pour it into the bread.
  • Sprinkle almond nuts.
