8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, cubed

Grind up the almonds, sugar, salt and almond extract in your food processor, serious blender or bullet (I used my bullet).



Move to bowl and mix in your eggs and butter till they're very well combined. Now add in the flour and baking powder and mix till just blended.



Pour batter into greased and floured pan and bake for 30-40 minutes. Cool in the pan.

This cake is the second in my cake year challenge. The only request this week was 'something simple and nutty'. Mission accomplished!
