    I’m a 74 year old grandmother who has been making The Settlement Cookbook’s almond bread slices, or mandlebrot, with a few alterations for many years. Recently, I made them and they seemed bitter. I threw them out thinking I had not measure something correctly and remade them being sure to smell all the ingredients I had used. Again, they were somewhat off taste or bitter. In all my years of cooking and baking, I have never had a “kitchen mystery” like this! Have you ever had this happen or do you have any idea what could have gone wrong? Thank you so much! This is our favorite cookie or treat!

      I am not familiar with that recipe but I imagine it has almonds in it and it is possible that the almonds you are using are old and are rancid which could have made the mandlebrot taste bitter.
