Cherry AlmondAs said in King Arthur’s Winter catalog and also on-line, this is a sweet, moist cake that will get rave reviews.  And that’s exactly what it was, a sweet, moist cake with a light cherry and rich almond flavoring.  Delicious!

Cherry Almond Cake

Streusel Topping

3/4 cup flour

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup almond paste, crumbled

1/4 tsp almond extract

5 Tbsp cold butter

Whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt.  Crumble in the almond paste and add the almond extract.  Work in the cold butter (I grated this) till the mixture becomes crumbly.  Set aside. 

Cake

1/2 cup soft butter

1 cup granulated sugarCherry Almond Slice

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp almond extract

2 eggs

1 2/3 cups flour

2/3 cup sour cream

Filling:  21-oz cherry pie filling

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a 9×13 pan. 

Beat together the butter, sugar, salt, baking powder and extract until fluffy.  Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each.  Add the flour in thirds, alternately with the sour cream, blending well after each addition (but don’t overmix). 

Spread the batter in the prepared pan.  Top with the cherries and streusel topping.

Bake the cake for 40-50 minutes until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  While the cake is baking, prepare the glaze.

Glaze

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

1/4 tsp almond extract

2-3 Tbsp milk or cream

Combine the confectioners’ sugar, almond and just enough of the milk to make a pourable glaze.  Drizzle it over the cooled cake.
