Back in the 1960s, my mother would buy breakfast pastries at Larson’s Bakery in
Berkeley, California. One in particular that I remember was called “shingle.”
It was thin and flat, with what I think were sliced almonds on top and a glaze.
I’ve looked for something similar in other bakeries over the years, but never
seen anything close.
I found a few - very few - mentions of Larson's Bakery in Berkeley. No recipes and no mentions of anything
called "shingle." "Shingle" in cooking usually refers to a piece of toasted bread, often with toppings of
some kind. I cannot find, though, any mention of a bakery "shingle" or "breakfast shingle" and nothing
like that with sliced almonds.
I'll post this for reader input.
