Lynn’s Glazed Almond Coffee Cake

April 15, 2013


This coffee cake comes to you courtesy of Lynn Mason- one of the best cooks I know.  Borrow one of Lynn’s recipes and you can be sure it will turn out beautifully. This cake is rich, buttery and perfectly sweet. You won’t be able to stop at just one slice.

1 1/2 sticks of butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp almond extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
sliced or slivered almonds

Glaze (optional):
1 c powdered sugar
3-4 tsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions: Preheat oven to 350.  Line a 10 inch iron skillet with heavy-duty aluminum foil, leaving several inches over edge to wrap/close when finished baking.  Combine butter and sugar.  Beat until smooth.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add almond extract.  Fold in flour and salt.  Spread in skillet (I spray the foil with Pam) and sprinkle the top with almonds.  Bake 35 to 40 minutes.  Cool and glaze.  Lift out of skillet and close foil. This freezes well.
