Almond Berry Bread Recipe

With raspberries and a sugary almond crust, this quick bread is pretty inside and out. I like to bake two and give one away.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + standing Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup 2% milk

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, pour milk over oats; let stand for 30 minutes. In a large bowl, beat the almond paste, butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extract. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with oat mixture. Fold in 1/4 cup almonds.
