Scandinavian Almond Cake

"I got this recipe when I bought a cool looking pan. It's meant to go in there, but would work just as well in a loaf pan. This cake is very almondy and moist!"

Questions & Replies

  1. Can a person use Almond milk instead of milk? I have a grandson with an allergy?
  2. Every time I make this cake in the traditional pan, it sticks. The recipe that came with my pan said to use margarine, but I’ve used butter. Do you think it makes a difference? Also, any tips for getting it out easily?
  3. Can this cake be made using almond flour? Thanks!
  4. What size pan do you use to bake this cake? Also, the picture reveals almond slices inside the cake near the top of it. I don't see anything about this in the recipe. Can you enlighten me as to how that is accomplished?


  1. I searched for this recipe after receiving one of these cakes as a hostess gift at Christmas. I've made it on several occasions and have passed it on to others on my step by step blog; Kitchen Toys Make Cooking Fun. If you follow the directions, you should have success and a mouth watering, crave able cake! Thanks Chef for posting this recipe.
  2. This is so easy and yummy... I get a lot of compliments each time I make it... great almond flavor, perfectly sweet. Thanks for the recipe!
  3. This almond cake is delicious & so easy to make. I used a 9 x 5 loaf pan - worked great!!!
  4. Turned out great! I let it cool for a couple hours - not overnight- and it came out easily. I also put a blanched almond in every indentation in the bottom of my pan. On another site with the identical recipe, they mentioned that you can use a loaf pan if you don't have the scandinavian kind!
