Ingredients
  • Filling:
  • 8oz package of almond paste, chopped up
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ stick of butter
  • Cake:
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 ½ t baking powder
  • 1 ½ t baking soda
  • ¾ t salt
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ sticks butter, softened not melted
  • 1 ½ t vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups sour cream
  • 1-2 cups sliced almonds
Instructions
  1. Melt butter then add almond paste and powdered sugar, stirring constantly, until smooth.
  2. Remove from heat. Set aside. Do this first so it can cool down.
  3. Heat oven to 325 degree.
  4. Grease or butter a 12-cup bundt cake pan.
  5. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
  6. In a mixer, beat granulated sugar and butter until well combined.
  7. Then add the eggs and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy.
  8. Add vanilla and mix.
  9. Beat in flour mixture alternately with sour cream on low speed, beating until smooth after each addition. Layer as shown below in the bundt pan.
  10. I used to divide the almonds into 4 parts, but it does not slice well when they are on the top after it is flipped over (the bottom of the bundt pan after it is greased), so divide them into three parts.
  11. Layer in order on bottom of greased bundt:
  12. one third layer of batter
  13. one half layer of filling
  14. sprinkle on ⅓ to ⅔ cup of almonds
  15. one third layer of batter
  16. one half layer of filling
  17. sprinkle on ⅓ to ⅔ cup of almonds
  18. one third layer of batter
  19. remaining ⅓ to ⅔ cup of almonds
  20. Also when you are layering the almond filling, I take some and flatten it in my hand before laying it on the cake batter, that way it totally covers the batter on two different layers with a thin layer, not globs of it.
  21. Bake about 1 hour until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
  22. Cool 20 minutes and remove from pan.
  23. Dust lightly with powder sugar.
  24. Leftovers freeze well.
