My mother used to make this all the time, usually to go with Sunday dinner. I was hooked. Haven't had it in ages and I was wanting to bake something special for a special someone so I asked mum for the recipe. Tried it out today, and it's just as I remember. The thing that makes it for me is the frangipane. Hope you like it as much as I do.

This is a vegetarian nut loaf that is great for Christmas or Easter, a Sunday lunch or any of those times when a meat roast is traditional. It's got a real "meaty" taste.

Serve this delicious roast leg of pork with roast potatoes, apple sauce and green veg like beans or broccoli.
