Filling:
8oz package of almond paste, chopped
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 stick of butter
Cook almond paste, powdered sugar and butter over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth, remove from heat. Set aside. Do this first so it can cool down.

 

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

Heat oven to 325 degree. Grease a 12-cup Bundt cake pan. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat granulated sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Beat in flour mixture alternately with sour cream on low speed, beating until smooth after each addition. Layer as shown below in the pan. 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.

Layer on bottom of greased Bundt:

1/3 layer of batter
½ layer of filling
sprinkle on 1/3 to 2/3 cup of almonds
1/3 layer of batter
½ layer of filling
sprinkle on 1/3 to 2/3 cup of almonds
1/3 layer of batter
remaining 1/3 to 2/3 cup of almonds

Bake about 1 hour until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool 20 minutes and remove from pan. Dust lightly with powder sugar. Leftovers freeze well.
