Preparation, Make 8 servings
DIFFICULTY: Moderate
INGREDIENTS

1 Promise Gluten Free Brioche Loaf, left out overnight to dry
½ cup water
1 cup sugar, divided
1 tbsp orange juice
1 cup ground almonds/ almond meal
4 tbsp unsalted butter
1 large egg
½ tsp almond extract
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup sliced almonds
A sprinkle of powered icing sugar

STEPS
STEP 1

Preheat oven to 200° C or 350° F.

STEP 2

Arrange brioche slices on parchment-lined baking trays, leaving about 2” of space in between each slice.

STEP 3

In a small saucepan over medium heat, dissolve ½ cup sugar in the water and orange juice. Bring to a boil and simmer until the mixture reduces to a syrup. Set aside and let cool.

STEP 4

For the frangipane: In a mixing bowl, combine the remaining ½ cup sugar, ground almond (almond meal) butter, and egg until creamy. Stir in the almond extract and salt.

STEP 5

Brush both sides of the brioche with the syrup until moist. Spread each slice with a thick layer of frangipane. Top with sliced almonds.

STEP 6

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are a deep golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack. Serve warm with a dusting of powdered icing sugar (if desired).
