We do a version of this almond cake with a cherry topping but it's great plain as well. We pulled the recipe from italian-dessert-recipes.com which has all sorts of yummy italian desserts.
3/4 cups of butter
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 Tbsp sugar
3/4 cup of SLICED almonds
ProcedurePreheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Pour melted butter in a bowl and stir in sugar. Stir it.
Add eggs (see it really is one bowl).
Stir till creamy.
Add all other ingredients (but not the topping ingredients!).
Grease bottom and sides of pan. I use a springform - but you can use a 9 inch also.
Spread the batter in the pan.
Sprinkle the almonds over the top and add sprinkle the sugar.
Bake for 40 mins.
