Almond Cake Ingredient List

A Cake can generally be divided into two parts, the batter, and the topping. For the topping, we are using berry jam and cream. So, let us start the preparation!
For making the perfect batter for your almond cake, follow the instructions below:
- Take some Almond paste and sugar and mix it in a food processor to make a fine powder.
- Add some butter and again process the mixture
- Now, add eggs and almond extract and you guessed it, process the mixture again.
- Now you can sprinkle the flor, add some baking powder and salt. Mix the batter until it is combined properly.
- When the batter has a good consistency, you can now pour the batter into a cake pan greased with oil (preferably olive or coconut oil) and then, bake the cake.
Why do you need almond paste for this recipe?
Almond paste is a mixture of almonds and sugar. You can buy it in your closest supermarket. This paste is used for the batter and it is mostly what makes the cake. It is used because the paste is soft, moist and provides that sweet almond flavor to the cake. You shouldn’t try to make your own almond paste because that can break the cake’s consistency. Almond paste is not that expensive and it is very convenient to use them.
When the cake has been baked, take it out of the oven and let it cool for a while. Keep it in a fridge if you want it to cool faster.
The next thing to do now is to create our topping. We are going for a Berry Jam and Cream topping. Simply add a layer of jam at the top of the cake when you take it out of the fridge.
Now top the jam layer with whipped cream. Apply a gentle amount of whipped cream. The cake is almost ready now. You can definitely eat it now. But if you want it to look good then add some fresh berries over the whipped cream. This will make the cake look even better.
Almond Cake is one of the best cake recipes that we have. The cake is very easy to make and it is tasty as well. You can consume almond cake anytime you crave something sweet. You can even make it on a birthday or an anniversary or any other function that you are hosting. Homemade cakes are generally healthier than what’s available in the market so, yeah definitely give it a try!
