Almond Butter Cake Recipe

Shelly Jones made this dessert for a Stake Relief Society meeting and it was so yummy. It is a very dense cake that was just the right sweetness.

1 1/2 c sugar
3/4 c (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
2 eggs
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 t real almond extract
1 t real vanilla extract
1 1/2 c flour
~1 T sugar (to top)
~ 1/4 c sliced almonds

Stir together sugar (1 1/2 c) and melted butter until smooth. Add eggs and stir until creamy and all one color. Add salt, almond extract, vanilla, and flour, and stir vigorously until blended. Pour into a greased 9" cake pan and smooth the top. Sprinkle with sugar (~1 T) and then sliced almonds. Bake at 350 for about 35 mins or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few crumbs on it. Cool at least 30 mins. Serve with fresh fruit and whipped cream, ice cream and warm fruit sauce, etc.
