  • For Cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease and flour 9" springform pan or use a 9" to 10" round cake pan.
  • Combine flour and sugar in medium bowl.
  • Cut in the butter with pastry blender or use two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • 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.

  • To serve (from springform pan), remove side of pan; slice coffee cake into wedges.
