Almond Butter Pound Cake
Source of Recipe
List of Ingredients
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup (about 2 3/4 ounces) almond paste
5 ounces butter, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs, at room temperature
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
Butter an 8-inch loaf pan. Preheat the oven to 350º and adjust the rack to the middle of the oven. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the sugar and almond paste until the paste is completely broken up. Add the butter and vanilla and continue to beat for 3 minutes, until light and creamy.
Add the eggs one at a time, stopping the mixer, as necessary, to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Sift together the dry ingredients and stir them into the creamed butter mixture.
Transfer the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool for 30 minutes, then remove the cake from the pan and cool completely on a rack.
