I've got these ingredients, help me find a recipe!

Hello there! I bought some almonds and i'll like to make my first sweet bread. I've got these ingredients:

  • Yeast, instant.
  • All purpose flour.
  • Sugar.
  • Honey.
  • Almonds.
  • Wisky (Glenlivet 12 yrs, single malt, not too much!)
  • Egg.
  • Milk.
  • Vanilla extract.
  • Butter.
  • Something to make that sugary, crispy coating for the top, is it made with diluted sugar?

I was thinking of a sort of pannetone, but it's complicated... I'd like something moisty on the inside, not very hard to make (i just made 5 breads so far, still a newbie!) Those are the ingredients i'd like to use, the recipe may have any or preferable all of them ;).

I'm tempted to adapt other recipes of pannetones, but i dont want to blow it with the ratios. I'm tempted to go 65% milk because i like it for my standard water based bread, easier to work, but i also want to get some egg which i do not know how it plays.

I'm lost, need guidance!

I haven't got a recipe for you, sorry, but you can use the following website:-

Just enter your ingredients and it will pull up lots of recipes for you.

Or you could use google to search for bread recipes using the main ingredients you want to use.

Good luck!

make an almond/vanilla pudding filling instead.  Easy and looks good!  

Puddings are made by thickening sweetened milk with eggs and  starches.  Pulse your nuts and soak in milk to soften before using.  Toppings are often powdered sugar with milk or cream and almond or vanilla extract.

Slip in a shot or two of whiskey anytime into the wet ingredients making substitutions.  Don't forget one shot for the baker.  Don't serve to anyone sensitive to alcohol.
