I cut each layer in half to make this a four layer cake. The frosting/filling finishes off this cake. I have also substituted 1/4 cup amaretto liquor and 1 tsp. vanilla extract for the almond extract.

How to Make Toasted Almond Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in butter until fine crumbs form.
  • 2Add eggs, kahula, half and half and almond extract. Beat at low speed for one minute, then high speed for about two minutes scraping the bowl.
  • 3Pour into greased and floured 2-9 inch round pans or 1 9x13 pan. Bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees or until toothpick comes out clean.
  • 4Cool completely before frosting.
  • 5Combine ingredients for frosting and mix well. Frosting is used for filling in between layers. I usually cut each layer in half and have frosting in between each layer but you can make it a regular two layer cake. I frost both the top and sides of cake.
  • 6Take the chopped almonds, and shredded coconut and spread across the top of the cake.
