Finsk Bread is a community recipe submitted by jandarini and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Put the flour into a big bowl and add the butter which has been cut into small pieces.
  • Crumble together until the mix resembles fine breadcrumbs, then add the 100g sugar. Quickly collect the paste together and leave in a cool place for one hour at least (you can freeze at this point).
  • Put the oven on at 200 degrees . Cut the pastry into smaller pieces and make into finger-thick rolls. Cut into 4-5cm pieces.
  • Dip each bread first into the egg which should be whisked, then the chopped almonds and then the granulated sugar. You can alternatively sprinkle both the chopped almonds and sugar on.
  • Put the breads on a greased baking tray and cook on the highest rung of the oven for approx 10 minutes or until they are golden. Cool on a wire rack and put into tins.
