Manic Monday Recipe~Scandinavian Almond Cake

For Christmas, my mother-in-law got me a really cool Rehrucken Cake Pan from Pipka's of Door County, WI.  The cake pan looks like this:

Along with the pan, was an oh so yummy recipe.  I love the flavor of almonds, but I'm one of those people who love the taste of nuts, but not chunks of them in my food. So I was so excited to get this recipe.  The sliced almonds are optional.  
I made this last weekend when I had family here, and by the time I went to take a picture it was GONE!  I will post one as soon as I make it again.  
This is a fabulous cake for a lazy day where you want to "graze!"  Or, it is also a fabulous cake for a brunch.

Make sure to come back on Wednesday for my Share the Wealth Wednesday Link Party!

1 1/4 C. Sugar
1 Egg
1 1/2 tsp. Pure Almond Extract
2/3 C. Milk
1 1/2 C. Flour
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda

Beat the first 4 ingredients in a bowl.  Next, mix in the flour and baking soda.
Then butter and flour the Rehrucken pan.  Pour the batter into the pan, and sprinkle with sliced almonds (optional: if you choose to use the almonds, they will be like a crust on the bottom since you flip the cake to get it out of the pan.  
Bake at 350 degrees for 38-42 minutes until golden brown.
Cool the cake in the pan for about 7 minutes, then invert cake onto a cooling rack.  
Before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

  1. This recipe has no butter in the batter. Is that correct?
