A tasty treat for all of you...

A treasured recipe all dolled up for the season. Merry Christmas!

Almond Cake
1 Tube Almond Paste
1 Stick butter
½ c Sugar
3 eggs
1tsp Almond Extract
1/2c Sifted Flour

Ganache Top
1 pkg Dove Chocolate (dark or milk)
Dove spreads better than Hersheys though Godiva may work just as well
1/4c Whipping Cream
1Tbsp Butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In food processor, combine almond paste, butter and sugar. Mix until puffy. Add extract. Mix. Beat in 1 egg at a time. Once mixed together, slowly add flour. Phase the flour in. Grease an 8” pan, line with parchment paper on the bottom. Pour batter into pan, bake for 30-35 minutes.

Let cool.

For the top, melt the chocolate, whipping cream and butter in the microwave in 30 second intervals. Spread on top of cake.
