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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375degrees. Grease a 9X9, 8X8 or round cake pan.
2
Combine softened butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and lemon zest and combine. Add in almond and vanilla.
3
In 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.
4
Place 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.
