This recipe comes courtesy of a co-worker of mine. She periodically bring this cake in to share with us and it is a favourite of mine. She shared the recipe with me and I decided to make it today.
It began with butter and sugar which I beat until it turned light and fluffy then I added four eggs. Once the eggs, butter and sugar were mixed well, I added flour and baking powder. Her recipe called for vanilla but I was doing this my way, so I went with almond extract instead.
I love the simplicity of this cake, it is fool-proof. Straight from the oven, there is a slight crispness on the outside and the middle is so moist and rich in buttery goodness. I love the hint of almond flavour with the addition of almond extract. How about that colour!? This cake would be perfect with a cup of tea or coffee or maybe as a breakfast cake. So happy to have this in my repertoire now! =)
