Sugar Syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together all ingredients. Keep covered in a dark place for at least 8 hours. Butter a 9” x 9” baking dish and cover it with flour. Add the dough mixture and spread it equally in the dish. Add almonds on the top. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare sugar syrup. Simmer sugar and water and a squeeze of lemon on low heat for about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove baking pan from oven and let cool. Cut into small pieces and add the sugar syrup while still hot.
