ALMOND CAKE (PATESPANI AMYGALOU)

Ingredients
  

  • 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

Instructions
 

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