Almond Coffee Cake

This is a delicious almond flavored coffee cake. It’s perfect to serve for brunch or to give as a hostess gift. A friend made it for me after I had surgery, and because I enjoyed it so much I asked for the recipe. Luckily she was happy to share. The best part, this recipe is very simple to prepare but still homemade!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon almond flavoring
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • Cinnamon for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt butter in an 8” cast iron skillet.

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs then add, stirring after each addition,sugar, flour, and flavorings.

Add melted butter to the mixture stirring well.

Pour batter back into the skillet and sprinkle with almonds then dust with cinnamon.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool completely before serving.
