500ml cake flour

250ml castor sugar

5ml baking powder

Pinch of salt

2-3 eggs

Vanilla essence

Grated rind of 1 orange

375ml whole almonds, blanched


Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Beat eggs, vanilla and rind together. Pour onto the dry ingredients and stir gently with a wooden spoon. Add the nuts. When you have manageable dough, divide into two and roll into a log. Place on a greased floured baking tray, leaving enough room between them as they expand. Bake at 180°C until firm and light golden. Remove and cool slightly. Slice thinly whilst warm and place flat on oven tray. Turn down the heat to 140°C and bake further until crisp but not too hard - 45mins - 1 hr should be sufficient. When cool, lightly dust the slices with some icing sugar. Keep in an airtight container and serve with coffee.


Variation: 2-3 different nuts  such as Brazil nuts or hazel nuts can be used.
