Almond Bundt CakePosted: October 25, 2015
I am running a bake sale at my oldest son’s school next Saturday. I am considering baking this Almond Bundt Cake as one of the items I contribute to said bake sale. I have made this cake a few times over the past year. It’s delicious! It’s quick and easy to prepare, but extraordinary enough for a special occasion. I think it will sell quickly.
Tip: Trader Joe’s sells Almond Meal at a reasonable price that is perfect for this recipe.
Almond Bundt Cake
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cups ground almonds
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons almond extract
1 cup milk
For the glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 tablespoons milk (plus more, if needed)
sliced almonds for garnish (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
Mix together the flour, ground almonds, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well. Add the vanilla and almond extracts.
Mix the flour into the mixture, alternating with the cup of milk.
Pour batter into prepared bundt pan.
Bake for 60 – 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool the cake for at least 10 minutes and then invert onto a cooling rack. Let the cake cool.
Make the glaze. In a bowl, mix the powdered sugar, almond extract and milk together until smooth. Drizzle over the cake. Sprinkle sliced almonds over the top of the cake, if you wish.
