Add the flour with the baking powder and baking soda, previously passed through a sieve, alternating with the coffee, prepared with the NESCAFÉ GOLD Dark Roast capsule, also add the essence of vanilla, the walnut and the almond. Beat perfectly until everything is integrated.
Place the dough on a tray with waxed paper, shape it into an elongated and uniform shape, as if it were a loaf of bread. Bake 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Cut the loaf of bread into 1 cm thick slices, arrange them lying on a tray and bake for another 15 minutes or until golden brown on both sides.
Remove from the oven, let cool and serve.
You can add chopped nuts (walnuts, pine nuts, blueberries, almonds, pistachios) to the dough.
