Almond Butter Cake

This is a rich, buttery treat that calls out for a cup of tea, English Breakfast preferably.  We call it cake, but it’s almost closer to a shortbread in texture.  Whatever you want to call it, it’s delectable.

Almond Butter Cake

2/3 cup butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp almond extract

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tbsp cream or milk

1/2 cup slivered or sliced almonds

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add egg and almond extract, mixing well.  Add flour and baking powder, mixing till a dough forms.  Press into a greased 8” round cake pan.  Brush with cream or milk.  Sprinkle with  almonds.  At 325 degrees F, bake for about 30 minutes till very lightly golden, middle should be set.  Be careful not to overbake!  Let cool, then cut into small wedges to serve.
