Almond Torte

Torte de Cielo

Torte de Cielo

Trader Joe’s sells almond flour! This one smelled so almondy and the cake was sorta dense and crumbly at the same time. It was strange but good and sweet! This would go well as an afternoon snack with hot tea or coffee! I got this recipe from my Perfect Baking cookbook. Recipe as follows.

1 cup room temperature butter (2 sticks!)

175g almond flour. You can also food process whole almonds but I don’t have a food processor.

225g sugar

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp almond extract

9 tablespoon APF

a pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350F. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, almond flour and extracts. Mix in the APF and salt until just combined. Pour into a greased cake pan ( I just used the left over paper that was used to wrap the butter in) and slide into the oven for 43 minutes, turning once. Cool. Slide in a baking sheet of sliced almonds to toast using the residual heat.  Dust with powdered sugar and the toasted almonds. This looked amazing and tasted great!
