Food Friday: Swedish Almond Cake!

Sometimes you hear of a recipe that so far exceeds your expectations that you want to make it again and again.  This is such a recipe.  My friend Judy sent me the recipe months ago.  I had not gotten around to making it yet. I had even bought the special pan for the cake and STILL did not make it.  Tonight I made it for our early morning eaters.  I think they will love it, if they try it.

The recipe is called Swedish Almond Cake. It could not be easier to make. I am sure it would be good even without the cool pan. 

This is the recipe as I made it:

Swedish Almond Cake

1/2 cup  butter, melted
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract
2/3 cup milk
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder

Preheat oven to 350º.

Grease a 9 by 5 loaf pan or the special almond cake pan that lets you cut perfect slices.

Stir the sugar, egg, almond extract and milk thoroughly.  In a separate bowl stir together the flour and baking powder.  Gently stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.  Add the melted butter and stir until smooth.  Add a handful of slivered almonds if you like.  Pour into prepared pan.

  Bake at 350 degrees F. for 40-50 minutes.  Cool.  Sift confectioner’s sugar on top.

Next time I will cook it for 40 minutes instead of the 50 minutes.  It was still wonderful but the crust on the end slices was a bit hard.

Very light.  Very yummy.
