Almond Pound Cake

I am a big tea drinker - both hot and cold tea.  Sometimes I like to have a little something to eat that is just a little bit sweet when I am drinking tea.  This cake is just perfect.  I thought when I added the whole tube of almond paste that the almond flavor would be very strong.  But it was just enough.   This is very easy to make and can be served at either breakfast or as dessert.


1 7 oz box of Odense almond paste, grated
1 cup sugar
2 sticks butter, room temperature
4 large eggs, room temperature
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease and flour either a 9 x 5 loaf pan or a 10 cup bundt pan.
Using an electric mixer set on medium speed, beat grated almond paste, sugar and butter until well mixed.

Add eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition.  Beat on high until light and fluffy.
Sift flour with baking powder and add to batter alternately with milk.  Beat on low until just combined and smooth.  Do not over mix or cake will be tough.

Pour batter into pan.  Bake for 50-60 minutes for bundt pan or 75 minutes for loaf pan or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.  Cool cake in pan for 5 minutes on wire rack.  Unmold carefully and finish cooling before sprinkling with powdered sugar and serving.
