Equipment

  • 8" round cake pan

Ingredients

  • 7 oz almond paste
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 8 Tbsp butter room temperature
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 tsp pure almond extract
  • ¼ cup all-purpose or pastry flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • lemon curd homemade or store bought
  • fresh berries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray an 8" round cake pan with baking spray.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together almond paste, sugar, and butter until well-mixed, about 3 minutes. 
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time, then add almond extract, scraping down sides as needed.
  • Whisk together flour and baking powder, then slowly add to mixer until just mixed. Pour into greased cake pan and bake 40 minutes, or until just cooked through.
  • Place pan on a cooling rack and let sit for 10 minutes. Invert cake onto the cooling rack, then let cool another 5-10 minutes. Serve with powdered sugar dusted on, lemon curd (if desired), and fresh berries.

Notes

If you (or your kids) find lemon curd too tart, omit entirely and replace with powdered sugar or a drizzle of melted chocolate or salted caramel.
