  • About

This is a moist butter cake with a subtle almond flavor. When small strawberries or fresh raspberries are available, I substitute them for the jam and nuts and arrange the berries on top of the cake as though it were a tart.


  • cup (70 grams) sifted cake flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder


Baking Preparations

Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 350 degrees.

Using a paper towel, grease the bottom and sides of the pan with solid shortening. Dust generously with all-purpose flour, shake to distribute and tap out excess.

Ingredient Preparations

Pour the flour, baking powder and salt into a triple sifter. Sif
