Almond tea time cake

I's really craving for some cake for the last two days but not the frosting type..I's looking for  a cake which u can have it with tea ,oh yeah, our snack time during the evening hours..and while I's surfing for the recipes ,found a link in youtube ,and watched the video..The  fact is, I love almonds in any form and having plenty in stock. I don't like the idea of getting the storebought one also..So i tried by adding the freshly ground paste and voila , was awesome, the taste was great ... Try this cake when u find time and relish the way I did..

Ingredients :

All purpose flour -- 2/3 cup
Almond paste -- 8 Oz ( I used freshly ground almond paste )
Sugar -- 1 1/3 cups ( only 1/3 cup if u use storebought almond paste )
Eggs -- 4 nos.
Salt -- a pinch
Baking Powder -- 1/2 tsp
Butter -- 1 stick --softened
Slivered almonds -- a handsful --for topping

Method :

Preheat the oven to 350 F .Take a mixing bowl and add the butter,almond paste and blend this both until  mix together. Then add the egg slowly one by one and mix it.

.Do not beat it for long ( Do not dump all the eggs  at once ) .Add the sugar as well  and blend it.Take a seperate bowl and add the flour,salt and baking powder and mix it using a whisk. Add this flour mixture little by little to the wet mixture and miix it properly..

Do not beat the mixture too much. Grease a  9 in pan with butter /cooking spray and line it with parchment paper and grease the top part of parchment paper too. Now pour the cake batter into the pan and garnish it with slivered /chopped almonds on top of the batter and bake it for 40 to 50 minutes..

If u use storebought almond paste, bake it for 30 minutes. Always keep an eye on the cake since the oven may vary ... Njoy !!!
