Almond Torte

It turns out that our friends at HuffPost declared an Almond Torte the greatest cake in America, so it got us looking for the recipe to bring to you.

Here is one we found on The Vintage Maker, enjoy the slideshow above and try your hands on the cake and let us know how it went.

Have a sweet day!

Almond Torte
from the LA Times

1 1/4 c Sugar
8 oz Soft almond paste
1 1/4 c Unsalted butter; softened
1 ts Vanilla
6 Eggs; at room temperature
1 c Flour
1 1/2 ts Baking powder
1/4 ts Salt

In food processor, process sugar with almond paste until paste is in small pieces. Add butter and vanilla and continue processing until mixture is smooth. Add eggs, 1 by 1, mixing until each is incorporated, then process until mixture is light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes. In small work bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Sprinkle over butter mixture and process in 2 or 3 short bursts, just until flour mixes in well. Butter and flour 9-inch spring form pan or 9×5-inch loaf pan and pour in batter, smoothing top evenly. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until wood pick inserted in center comes out clean and center feels springy when pressed gently with tips of fingers. Let cool then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
