I saw the recipe this morning on a blog that I follow called Lovefoodies www.lovefoodies.com
You can access the blog from mine listed on blogs that I follow or at the following link:
The cake looks amazing. I'll certainly make it and post a picture. I just got permission from lovefoodies to post her photograph of the cake. It was very generous of her to allow me to do this.
I still have plans to make it myself. I'll post my photograph at that time.
1- 9" Springform Pan ( grease with my Pan Release recipe or butter the bottom and sides, cut a round piece of waxed paper for the bottom and butter again)
1/2 C butter
1 C sugar
1 1/2 tsp Almond Extract
1 Egg, beaten (reserve 1 tsp and mix with 1 tsp of water to create an egg wash for the glaze)
1 1/2 C Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 C Slivered Almonds
In a medium bowl , mix together:
Beat well until creamy and smooth
Add 1 Beaten Egg, continue mixing well
Add Flour and Baking Powder and mix until well combined
Pour batter into the pan and spread evenly with the back of a spoon
Score the surface in a 1" criss-cross pattern with a sharp knife
Brush the surface with the egg wash
Sprinkle surface with Slivered Almonds
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes
The top will be golden brown and a toothpick should come out clean
I serve it with Vanilla Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, Lemon Curd or Fruit Jam.
Peace in the Kitchen!
