- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1 cup nuts - I usually use almonds or hazelnuts or both!
Turn oven on to 150°C/Gas Mark 2 and use a piece of parchment paper to cover a baking tray.
Mix the sugar and eggs in a free-standing mixer and beat until thick. Add flour, salt and baking powder and mix in slowly. Add the nuts. It should have the consistancy of sticky cookie dough (that's very sticky!). Spoon out onto baking tray into a long oval shape and bake for 1 hour.
Remove from the oven and turn oven down to 140°/Gas Mark 1. Leave to cool slightly for 10 minutes.
Cut up into rougly 1/2" slices and place back on baking tray, cut side up. Toast back in oven for 10 minutes each side.
Find a jar big enough to put them in - this one is from Ikea and is the perfect size, even if you do have to break a couple to get them all in snugly...
...display on kitchen windowsill as a reminder that they are a fat-free treat to have daily!
