• 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. 🙂
