2-Melt the margarine, wait a little before adding baking powder, until the margarine is
not too hot. If there is a slightly sparkling appearance, it is normal, leave for 5min.
3- In a large bowl, mix the flour, the blond sugar and the almond flour.
Add the 1 then the 2. Mix with a wooden spoon then use the electric whisk with the dough hooks to knead the dough, about 7 to 8min.
If you do not have an electric whisk with this kind of hook, knead by hand 8 to 10 minutes.
- The appearance of the dough will still be sticky but not too much and very elastic, place it in a clean large bowl, sprinkled with flour beforehand.
- Put a clean cloth on top and let stand for about 1 hour at room temperature. (in an oven subsequently preheated to 40 ° C is even better)
- Put baking paper at the bottom of a mold, set aside.
- Once the dough has rested, lightly flour your clean work surface and place the dough on it, knead it for a few moments with your hands then roll it out using a rolling pin.
- Brush your dough with chocolate spread, sprinkle with almonds reduced into small pieces (in the blender and it's good).
- Fold the dough back on itself in the shape of a sausage and cut it lengthwise.
- Pass one part over the other and so on to form a braid.
- Put the braid in your mold, if your mold is too small, fold the braid on itself.
- Brush it with a little vegetable milk so that it browns during cooking and sprinkle with chopped almonds.
