Servings: 8 slices
- ¾ cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 1½ cups sugar
- 3 eggs large
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1¾ cups flour
- 1½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup almonds ground
- ¾ cup whole milk
- ⅓ cup confectioner's sugar for dusting
Place a rack in the center of your oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit 20 minutes before baking your cake. Grease and flour pan and set aside.
Grind your almonds in a food processor, if not already finely ground.
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time; stir in almond and vanilla extracts.
In a small bowl, stir flour, baking powder, salt, and ground almonds. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with milk, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake 40 - 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in the pan, then invert the cake onto a wire rack. Cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired. Enjoy!
Perhaps the most challenging part of baking any bundt cake is the delicate process of removing your cake from the pan.
