DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and position the rack to the center of the oven. Line the bottom of a 9-inch cake pan with a round of parchment paper, or butter and dust it lightly with flour, tapping out any excess.
  • With an electric mixer, beat together the sugar and almond paste until the paste is finely broken up (the sugar crystals help break the paste into pieces--so don't add the butter yet!).
  • Now add the butter and beat for a few minutes until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl stir together the eggs with a fork then dribble it into the batter as you beat. Add the vanilla.
  • Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt with a whisk. Stir the dry ingredients into the batter until just incorporated.
  • Transfer the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The baking time may take a bit longer due to the variation in different brands of almond paste.
  • Cool the cake on a rack before serving.
