This cake has great flavor packed in a small pan! It has almond, lemon and vanilla- what could be better? I used Coconut palm sugar in mine but regular white sugar will work fine.

Ingredients

1/4 c
butter, softened
3/4 c
sugar (coconut palm or regular white)
1
egg
zest of one lemon
1/2 tsp
almond extract
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
milk
1/3 can(s)
almonds, sliced
cinnamon & sugar to sprinkle on top

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 375degrees. Grease a 9X9, 8X8 or round cake pan.
2Combine softened butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and lemon zest and combine. Add in almond and vanilla.
3In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Add flour mix to the butter mix alternately with the milk. Stir just to combine, do not over mix.
4Place batter in pan. Sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Top with sliced almonds. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Ovens vary so keep your eye on it in the last 5 minutes. It should get golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when it's done. Let cool 30 minutes before slicing.
