Nuts, dried fruits, chocolate bits, and other items are often included when making this bread. If it is made as a bread or cookie for Jewish holidays when a raised dough is not allowed, Mandel Bread is prepared using potato starch and matzo cake meal instead of flour. Mandel Bread is often served as a dessert bread or as a sweet to accompany a cup of coffee or tea. This type of bread may occassionally be referred to as Mondel Bread, but it is more commonly known as Mandel Bread.
