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.


Hello Laurel,

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.
