Almond Cake (Patespani Amygalou)

Hello!!!  I am finally done with  painting part of the house. I discovered that some walls need to be wallpapered, and not painted.  To be able to paint them I would have to start from the very basic rules, and since I am not a professional painter I decided to wallpaper them.

While searching the internet, I came across so many designs, I had no idea that wallpaper was back in style!!! this will definitely give the walls a great look instead of just paint.  I chose a few designs and expecting to receive them in the next few days.  🙂  

It was time for me to choose a recipe, so I sat around looking at the many different recipes I have and could not choose one that I really wanted to make…:) So, don’t laugh I actually did a “Eeny meeny miny moe” funny hahahahaha and this wonderful Almond Cake was chosen as the lucky recipe.

It is such a lovely cake with such a delicious taste, but your going to have excuse me for the picture, because unfortunately for some reason my cake, ufff thought it was a Soufflé and not a cake, it fell in the center.    I hope you enjoy this recipe!!!



  • 1 1/2 cups of All – Purpose- Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of Almonds sliced
  • 1 1/4 cup of Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of Butter
  • Lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup of cold Milk
  • 3 tablespoons of Baking Powder
  • Powdered Sugar for Topping


  1. Beat in a large bowl the butter, sugar and lemon zest.
  2. Slowly add in the milk and continue beating, In a small bowl mix together the flour and the baking powder and add into the mix.
  3. Add in the Almonds….I found in the supermarket sliced Almonds, this is much better than adding whole Almonds into the cake mix.
  4. Add in one egg at a time, and continue to beat until all the eggs have been added.
  5. I used this baking pan instead of a round one, but you can you use which ever you prefer.
  6. Bake at 180 degrees for 1 hour and until golden brown. Once it has baked set aside to cool off. Top with powdered sugar. 🙂
