This is recipe for Toasted Almond Crunch Topping is another quick and easy recipe… a perfect addition to baked goods…. Cheesecakes… coffee cakes and muffins to name a few…
It’s a great way to jazz up muffins made from a mix… I know… a mix… heavens.. the blog snob is rolling her eyes… but hey.. you and I both know we all use them from time to time…
To toast almonds… preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread evenly whole or sliced almonds on a baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes … shake the pan or stir with a cooking spoon every 2 -3 minutes. Do not leave unattended… nuts can burn easily. Allow to cool.
I used my mini chopper to finely chop toasted almond slices … about a handful at a time. Don’t fill more than that at a time otherwise the bottom slices will turn to powder and the top ones won’t chop enough.
So here’s this quick and easy topping… that I hope you try on your next batch of muffins.
Recipe: Toasted Almond Crunch Topping
All you need:
¾ cup toasted and finely chopped almonds
¼ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
All you have to do:
Mix together the chopped almonds, brown sugar and cinnamon.
Add the melted butter and mix well.
Sprinkle the topping on muffins, coffee cakes or other baked goods… you can sprinkle it before or after baking…. I usually sprinkle it right after whatever I’m baking comes out of the oven while it’s still hot.
Store any leftover topping in the fridge.
