Sweet Almond´s Cake
Some months ago, I posted this recipe in My Countryhome blog. Now, I´m adding it to Portuguese Menu too.
I make this cake with the sweet almonds from the trees we have in our plot.
It´s a very easy recipe of a delicious cake. Just mix all the ingredients, bake, and it´s done!
Portuguese Almond Cake
200 gr Sugar
200 gr Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Oil
1 Cup of grated Almonds
Beat the 4 eggs with the sugar, until they´re creamy. Add the milk, beat again, and then add the oil. Continue to beat and gently add the fluor, previously mixed with the baking powder.
For last, add the almond, and beat for more 2/3 minutes, until you see little bubbles. Remember that if you grate well the almonds you´ll never notice the peel.
Bake at 190º C, for 45 minutes.
Serve with any topping or decorate as you like. In my opinion, this cake is great with "egg´s sweet": " Doce de Ovos", as we call it in Portugal.
