My second daughter inherited many wonderful traits from her paternal grandmother. Looks, intelligence, an uncanny ability to memorize. It seemed fitting to me that this recipe (one of my mother-in-laws signatures) became my nine year old’s signature recipe over the holidays. ”Number 2″ (see below) made no less than a dozen of these simple cakes to share with friends, family and neighbors.
She made it so often, she no longer needs the recipe.
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 tsp. almond extract
- 2 eggs
- slivered almonds
Mix sugar, flour, butter, almond extract, and eggs on high for 3 minutes. Pour into greased pie pan. Sprinkle with slivered almonds. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
It’s amazing that such a humble looking cake could taste so good.
