Ingredients

Cake:

  • 1 1/4 cup whole almonds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cubed, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Topping:

  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • cinnamon, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º F and grease a 9-inch springform pan with butter or non-stick spray.
  2. Brush 1 1/2 tablespoons honey around the bottom and sides of the pan, then sprinkle 1/3 cup sliced almonds into the pan and set aside.
  3. Place almonds, sugar, honey, vanilla extract, almond extract and salt in the bowl of the food processor, and pulse into the ground.
  4. One at a time, add eggs, then butter, and pulse until incorporated and smooth.
  5. While pulsing, gradually add in baking powder and flour and mix until combined.
  6. Pour batter out into prepped springform pan and lightly hit it against the counter a few times, to make sure there are no air bubbles.
  7. Use a rubber spatula to smooth over the top and place in oven.
  8. Bake for 35-38 minutes, or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool, then run a knife around the edge of cake to loosen it.
  10. Place a serving dish on top of the pan, then flip over and invert pan onto the plate.
  11. Release the sides of the pan and cake should come free with honey almonds on top.
  12. Optional: Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Note: toast whole almonds by preheating oven to 350º F and spreading nuts out on a baking sheet. Bake for about 8 minutes, or until fragrant.

Note toast sliced almonds by heating them in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Stirring frequently, cook for 2-4 minutes, or until fragrant.
