Gourmet Archives

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 cups superfine sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, melted, cooled
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup milk
Vegetable cooking spray for coating pan

1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into bits
1/2 cup sliced unskinned almonds, toasted lightly

Make the cake: In a bowl combine well flour, baking powder and salt.
In bowl of electric mixer beat eggs until they are foamy. Beat in sugar gradually and beat mixture until it is thick and pale. Beat in the butter,

rack and invert it onto a plate. (Cake may be made 2 days in advance
and kept covered with plastic wrap and chilled. Bring cake to room temperature before proceeding with recipe.)

Make the topping

over moderate heat, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Stir n the butter. Bring mixture to a boil and boil it, stirring occasionally, until it is thickened slightly, and stir in the almonds.
Transfer cake to a baking sheet. Over it spoon the topping and put the cake under a preheated broiler about 3 inches from heat 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until almonds are golden. Transfer the cake with spatulas to a cake plate and serve it warm or at room temperature.
