Swedish Almond Cake

Original recipe from Ferrell Dewell

Lisa@The Cutting Edge of Ordinary

1 cup white granulated sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 stick butter, softened

2 eggs,beaten

1 1/2 teaspoon PURE almond extract

Slivered almonds for sprinkling on top


Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly spray a glass pie plate with cooking spray. In a large bowl, stir together sugar and flour. Add in the butter. This won't be like most cake batters. It's almost like you're making a strudel topping, so add the softened butter and then get in there with both your hands and keep crumbling it until it starts to come together. The mixture will be crumbly and that's ok.


Mix the eggs and almond extract together in a separate bowl. Add to the batter and stir to combine. The batter will be almost dough like. Spread evenly in the pie plate. Sprinkle the slivered almonds on top. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Let cool. Cut into wedges to serve.
