Scandinavian Almond Cake


My sweet neighbor, Melissa, brightened my day by sharing this yummy treat with us- it was gone in seconds.  I was excited to find a new home for the almond extract that is collecting dust on my cupboard shelf.  I think this one has a nice balance of sweetness and it was really good with strawberries on top!

Scandinavian Almond Cake (

  • 1 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2/3 c milk
  • 1 1/4 c flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 stick melted butter

Beat together sugar, egg, extract and milk. Stir in flour and baking powder. Then add butter. Mix well. Spray cake pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle slivered almonds into bottom of pan if desired. Pour into a greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes or till edges are golden brown. Cool cake in pan completely before removing. To remove place inverted Almond Cake Plate to top of cake pan and then flip. Dust with confectionary sugar if desired. Due to the ridges in cake pan, slicing is a 'piece of cake'.
