Recipe for Almond Cake Recipe

Recipe Ingredients:
1/4  tsp salt
3/4  cup Almond Paste
tsp baking powder
10  oz unsalted butter, room temperature
tsp pure vanilla
large eggs
cup all purpose flour
1 1/3  cup granulated sugar

Cooking Directions:
1.  Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and position the rack to the center of the oven. Line the bottom of a 9-inch cake pan with a round of parchment paper, or butter the pan and dust it lightly with flour, tapping out any excess.

2.  Beat together the sugar and almond paste until the paste is finely broken up (the sugar crystals helps break the paste into pieces-so don't add the butter yet)

3.  Add the butter and beat for a few minutes until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, or a measuring cup with a spout, stir together the eggs with a fork then dribble it into the batter as you beat. Add the vanilla.

4.  Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt with a whisk. Stir the dry ingredients into the batter until just incorporated.

5.  Transfer the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The baking time may take a but longer due to the variation in different brands of almond paste. Cool the cake on a rack before serving. This cake is extremely moist and will keep well for up to a week if well-wrapped.
