Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup packed almond paste
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup plus 5 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 6 egg yolks

Directions

In a mixing bowl, cream almond paste, butter and 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar. Add shortening; beat for 2 minutes. Add egg yolks; mix well. Gradually beat in milk. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. In another mixing bowl, beat egg whites until frothy.

"This is a very good recipe. I will use it for a breakfast bread but it could also be served as a dessert with some ice cream."
