Eggnog Almond Tea Loaf

1 Cup blanched almonds
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
3 1/3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoons each ground nutmeg, and grated lemon peel
1 large egg
3 Tablespoons salad oil
1 1/4 cups commercial eggnog

Spread almonds in a shallow baking pan and toast in 350 oven until golden (about 8 minutes) stirring frequently.

In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, lemon Peel (I would think orange peel might work too), and toasted almonds. In a small bowl, lightly beat egg, then beat in oil and eggnog. Add liquid mixture to flour mixture and stir until well blended. Pour batter into a greased, flour dusted 5 X 9 inch loaf pan or three 3 1/2 X 5 inch pans.

Bake in 350 degrees oven until a wooden toothpick inserted in center of bread comes out clean (about 1 hour for large loaf or 40 minutes for small loaves). Let cool on a rack for 10 minutes, then turn out onto rack and let cool completely. Makes 1 large loaf or 3 small loaves.
