- Grease and flour 9" springform pan or use a 9" to 10" round cake pan.

- Reserve 1 cup of the crumb mixture to use for topping.
- To remaining crumb mixture add sour cream, egg, vanilla extract, baking powder, baking soda and salt; blend well.
- Spread over bottom and 2" up the sides of the prepared pan. (You are making a crust in this step. To ease spreading, put a little flour on your fingertips).

- Spread over batter in pan.
- For the Topping: Spoon curd over filling; sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture and then sprinkle with sliced almonds.
