Scale

Ingredients

  • 7 ounces almond paste
  • 12 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 6 Tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • Powdered sugar for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place a parchment round in the bottom of an 8 inch round cake pan and grease the sides slightly.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together almond paste and softened butter for 2-3 minutes until fully combined. Add sugar and continue beating, stopping to scrape the sides as necessary.
  3. Add the eggs slowly, one at a time, slowly mixing between each addition. Add flour and cardamom, stirring until just combined. Spread evenly in cake pan and sprinkle sliced almonds on top.
  4. Bake for 32-35 minutes until edges are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool slightly and remove from pan. Before serving, sprinkle powdered sugar on top of the cake. Highly recommended to serve slightly warm!
