3/4 c Blanched almonds 2 c All-purpose flour 1 tb Baking powder 1/2 ts Salt 1 c Grated sharp Cheddar cheese 1 lg Onion; chopped 1/4 c Butter 3/4 c Milk 1/3 c Oil 3 Eggs 1/2 ts Dried basil 1/2 ts Dried thyme 1 1/2 c Grated zucchini; well -drained Preheat the oven to 300 F. Butter and flour a 9" round pan. Chop the almonds and spread on a cookie sheet to toast in the oven. Turn and stir them occasionally, watching like a hawk until they are golden brown. Set aside and raise the oven heat to 400 F. Combine the dry ingredients and toss gently with the cheese. Saute the onion in the butter until soft, then drop it into a blender or food processor along with the milk, oil, eggs and seasonings and blend well. Add the zucchini and make sure everything is well integrated before you stir in the toasted almonds, by hand. Pour the whole mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir lightly, then spread the batter into the pan and bake for 40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before removing from the pan. Cut in wedges to serve.
