Almond Butter Cake 杏仁奶油蛋糕

Saw this recipe in food.com when i was looking for a simple, quick, easy almond butter cake recipe. The picture shown was so attractive and look so delicious. I read through the recipe, yes, it is simple. quick and easy. This is a unique cake, it doesn't rise up very high  and it comes out crumbly, moist, sticky, chewy like a soft cookie. The crunchy almond flakes topping was so fragrance and I just love the almond extract aroma in the cake.


 
I am impressed the cake turn out so well, although there is no baking powder nor baking soda add to the cake. 

There are only some simple basic ingredients for this almond butter cake, that is butter, sugar, eggs, flour, salt, almond extract and vanilla extract. To do it is quick and easy, just use a whisk to mix and it will be done in 5 minutes. First, melt the butter, add in sugar stir till it is smooth, add in eggs mixed till it is creamy. Then mix in salt, almond extract, vanilla extract and flour, mixed into a smooth batter. Pour into the prepared baking tray and bake.

Crumbly, moist, and so fragrance.

I bake it in a 6 inches round baking tin.
