Easiest cake I ever made

Somebody sniffed me out.

This cake was FANTASTIC. It seriously takes 5 minutes to throw together but it comes out so fancy and delicious. Thanks Laura for sharing this wonderful recipe!

Go make this cake, eat it, then make another one for a fancy occasion.

Almond Cake


* 3/4 cups of butter
* 1 1/2 cups of sugar
* 2 eggs
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
* 1 1/2 cups of flour

* 1 Tbsp sugar
* 3/4 cup of SLICED almonds

* Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
* Melt butter.
* Pour melted butter in a bowl and stir in sugar. Stir it.
* Add eggs.
* Stir till creamy.
* Add all other ingredients (but not the topping ingredients!).
* Grease bottom and sides of pan. I used a 9 inch pan- springform might work best.
* Spread the batter in the pan.
* Sprinkle the almonds over the top then sprinkle on the sugar.
* Bake for 40 mins.


  1. Thanks for the recipe. Sounds delicious.

  2. You know I am so going to try this... I have to tell you the Mini-Ricotta Cakes & the Chewy Lime Sugar Cookies were a hit with everyone I've served them to. I have passed on links to your blog all over the place and I even had a little old lady send me a self-addressed envelop with 2 note cards in it for me to transcribe the recipes for her. You have made me look like cooking genius. Thank you!

  3. I'm so glad that you enjoyed it! I definitely want to make it again now that the weather is cooling down.

    Have a great day!
