Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C).
Step 2
Beat the Granulated Sugar (1 1/4 cups) with the Almond Paste (3/4 cup) until the almond paste is in fine pieces. Or, better, pulverize it in a food processor.
Step 3
Beat in the Unsalted Butter (1 cup) , Vanilla Extract (1 tsp) and Almond Extract (1/8 tsp) if using, then cream the mixture until it is light and fluffy.
Step 4
Beat in the Eggs (6) , one at a time, beating well after each addition so the eggs are thoroughly mixed in.
Step 5
Mix the All-Purpose Flour (1 cup) , Baking Powder (1/2 Tbsp) , and Salt (1/4 tsp) , and beat in just until thoroughly blended.
Step 6
Butter a 9-inch springform pan and turn the batter into it, smoothing the top evenly. Bake for 1 to 1¼ hours (mine baked for 1¼ hours) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the center feels springy when you push it gently.
Step 7
Let cool for about 20 minutes before releasing the sides of the springform pan. Add Powdered Confectioners Sugar (to taste) , if preferred.
