I got this recipe from my Mom. She gave it to me when I was at her house a few months ago. I finally got around to making it, and WOW! It was really good and super simple to make.

This is called 5-Minute Almond Cake because it only takes 5 minutes to make. It was ready to go in the oven before it finished preheating. The cake isn't super sweet (which is probably why I really liked it). It has lots of great almond flavor. I especially loved the sliced almonds on top! The cake goes wonderfully with a nice cup of coffee or tea.

  1. Is the flour self-rising or all-purpose?

  5. Very good. I added 1/4 teas. Baking powder & a pinch of salt. Next time will increase BP to 1/2 teas. and substitute sliced almonds with Pignoli nuts. This cake tastes like Italian Almond Cookies. Yum
