I have made this cake many times...with excellent results!
Wouldn't you must have done something wrong..
Removing it from the soon it fell apart..
Now I know it has to sit , cooling in the pan..10-15 minutes..

It has a crusty exterior with the almonds...and tastes really great.

Press almonds into butter on bottom and sides of pan.
Fill pan up to 2 inches from top with batter.
Left over batter can be used for cup cakes,
remove them when done.
Bake at 350 degrees about 1-1/4 hours.
Cool for 10 to 15 minutes in the pan.
Remove cake from pan.
This recipe makes a beautiful high cake,
that needs no frosting.
Sliced thin you can serve 20.

Great with ice-cream.
