Description

Perfectly sweet and moist almond cake with scrumptious butter frosting. Need I say more? Perfect for baby showers, bridal showers, etc.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CAKE:
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Water
  • ½ cups Sour Cream
  • 2  Eggs, Lightly Beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
  • Sliced Almonds For Sprinkling On Top
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • ½ cups Butter
  • ¼ cups Milk
  • ½ teaspoons Almond Extract
  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar

Preparation

For the cake:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 15 x 11 jelly roll pan. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (flour through baking powder) and set aside.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine butter and water. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Then add it into the flour mixture and stir to combine.

Stir in sour cream, beaten eggs and almond extract. Pour into prepared pan and bake 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Spread warm (not hot) cake with butter frosting (recipe below). Sprinkle with sliced almonds. Cut into squares and serve.

For the frosting:

In a medium saucepan, combine butter and milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; whisk in almond extract, and gradually whisk in powdered sugar until smooth. Frost almond cake.

*Notes: I don’t make the frosting until I’m ready to frost the cake (it will start to harden if it sits). I also sprinkle the almonds on top while the frosting is still warm so they’ll stay in place.

This was excellent! The cake itself wasn’t too sweet, so the frosting complimented it perfectly. I would definetely make this again, it’s perfect for an afternoon snack with a glass of milk!
