Lovin in the Oven: Almond Tea Cake Recipe

So, a few weeks ago I received this package in the mail with a bunch of recipes from Love N Bake, a company which makes fancy pastry fillings (almond paste, praline filling, chocolate filling, etc). "Whatever" I thought.

And then two days later, a big ol' box of said fillings arrived in the mail. Sweet! I was excited not only because they were free (cheapskate!), but because each flavor had recipes on the label (don't you just love back of the box recipes?). So I set to trying out the recipe on their almond paste package, for Almond Tea Cake. Don't let its unassuming appearance deceive you--this cake is heavenly. Simultaneously light and buttery all at once, it's got an amazingly luxuriant feeling in the mouth, and is equally as delicious as a breakfast treat, teatime companion or (with whipped cream) a respectable dinner dessert.

Almond Tea Cake

  • 1/2 cup almond paste (I used Love N Bake's...but you probably guessed that)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) butter, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • Optional: 1/2 cup white chocolate, cut into coarse pieces (I scattered them on top just before baking--yum)


Beat the almond paste with the sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Add ther butter and beat until fluffy. eat in the eggs. Stir well and then fold in the baking powder, flour and vanilla.
Spread the batter into a greased 8-inch cake pan. If you'd like to add the white chocolate, add it now, scattering it evenly over the surface of the cake (it's ok if some sinks). Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean. Cool on a rack, and unmold. If desired, dust with powdered sugar before serving.

The unassuming appearance is actually making me more interested. Cakes like this don't need lots of fancy clothes to cover them up. I can tell from the recipe it's going to be good! Happy Holidays :)
