3 eggs, medium
150 g granulated sugar
120 g butter, melted
1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
360 g all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon(s) baking powder
1 pinch salt
50 g almonds
all-purpose flour


1.Preheat the oven to 140ο C (280ο F) set to fan.
2.In a mixer’s bowl add the eggs, the sugar, and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 4-5 minutes, until fluffy.
3.Lower the mixer’s speed and add the butter in a slow, steady stream. Add the vanilla extract and keep beating.
4.In a bowl add the flour, the baking powder, the salt, the almonds crushed or whole, and mix. Add them into the mixer’s bowl and mix well for 1-2 minutes.
5.Dust your working surface and your hands with flour in order to be able to work with the dough as it will be very sticky. Take half of the dough, knead it -with more flour- into an oblong-shaped loaf, and transfer it to a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Follow the same process for the other half of the dough.
6.Bake for 30 minutes. Let them cool.
7.Increase the oven’s temperature to 160ο C (320ο F).
8.With a serrated knife, cut the loaves into thin slices, 1 cm each, and transfer to baking pans lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Remove and serve.
