It is so difficult to go back into my blogging mojo after being away from my blog for so long. My sister and I just got back from our vacations and man; we did enjoy ourselves very much. I never thought I get to visit so many beautiful places in such a short amount of time especially Yellowstone National Park at Wyoming . Carlos and I drove past this state during our cross country trip but we didn’t stop to do any sightseeing as we were rushing for time. I am glad I get to visit it this time around. If any of you have a chance, please do visit this place. You will never regret it.
Anyway, back to this cake. I baked it some time ago and only get to post it now. I like the tight crumbs texture with a light hint of lime of this cake.
226 gram butter - room temperature
200 gram sugar
200 gram flour
100 gram almond meal/powder
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
4 tbsp of milk
1 tsp lime zest
2 tsp pure vanilla or 1 tsp almond extract (I used vanilla as I am not a fan of almond extract)
Some sliced almond for garnish
1. Combined flour, almond meal, salt and baking powder. Mix well and set it aside. Line and greased an 8” x 8” square pan. Pre-heat oven to 350 degree F.
2. Cream sugar and butter until light and creamy. Add in the eggs, one at the time and beat until well combined. Add in the zest, vanilla or almond extract. Mix until combined,
3. Turn down the mixer to low speed, and add in the flour mixture and lastly the milk. Mix until combined.
4. Pour batter into the baking pan, spread it evenly. Sprinkle with the sliced almond. Press it down lightly with a spatula.
5. Bake for 50-55 or until wooden pick comes out clean when tested. Let it cool in pan for 15 minutes before removing it from pan .Cool completely before cutting into it.
Note: By the way, all the baking temperature stated here are in Fahrenheit. All ovens are different, that including the size of it and brand so the baking time stated here is just a guide. I received a very NASTY comment recently saying thanks to me that her cake got burned in half an hour. I can’t control how your oven works. Even I have to learn each time I work with a new oven.
