       Title: ALMOND BREAD ABM
  Categories: Breads
       Yield: 2 servings
  
       1 c  Milk
       1    Eggs
       3 tb Butter
       8 oz Almond paste; 1/8 slices
   2 1/2 c  Flour; not bread flour
       2 tb Sugar, brown
     1/2 ts Salt
       2 ts Yeast
 
 -----------------------------------GLAZE-----------------------------------
       1 ts Syrup, corn
       1 ts Water; warm
            Almonds, slivered
  
   Unless the instructions that came with your ABM  call for putting the yeast
   in the pan first and incorporating the liquid ingredients last, pour the
   milk into the baking pan of your ABM and break in the egg. If the butter is
   not soft, cut it into small chunks to ensure its blending into the dough,
   then add it to the liquids.
   
   Next add the almond paste, sliced so it will blend better too. Measure in
   the flour, brown sugar, and salt, and add the yeast as directed for your
   bread maker.
   
   You can use your machine’s full cycle with this bread, but the quick cycle
   is better. If a light color setting is available, use it as well.
   
   As soon as the bread has finished baking, remove it from the machine,
   closing the cover again, and ease the loaf from the pan. Combine the corn
   syrup and warm water and brush the top of the loaf with this mixture, using
   a pastry brush. Sprinkle the slivered almonds over the glaze, put the bread
   gently back in its pan, and return it to the electronic oven for a few
   minutes to dry the glaze a bit.
