Swedish Almond Cake

Almonds. One of the most perfect foods. Seriously, I keep a bag full in my drawer at the office, and if there's a recipe with almonds, or even almond extract (I could sniff that stuff forever!), you can bet I'll be making it. I whipped up this delightful little cake for a dinner party a few weeks ago, and it was a tremendous hit. It's super easy to make, no mixer required, and it is absolutely delicious. I served it with vanilla ice cream and strawberries, but I think the combinations of different fruit and sauces could be endless. Or you can eat it plain. For dessert or for breakfast. Hooray for versatility!

Swedish Almond Cake

1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 Tbsp. sliced almonds
1 Tbsp. coarse sugar

In a medium bowl, combine melted butter and sugar and stir well. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well by hand until incorporated. Stir in salt and almond extract, then mix in the flour.

Pour batter into a greased and floured 9 inch cake pan. Sprinkle coarse sugar and almonds on top. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on a wire rack. Makes 8 servings.
