LOVE this cake. I made half the amount, used all butter, used one vanilla bean instead of almond extract, skimmed milk and plain flour. Creamed the butter and sugar with a hand mixer til smooth and pale, add eggs one at a time, then the vanilla bean. Then I stir in the flour mix alternately with milk by hand. Making sure it is well incorporated by each addition. Takes a little effort but SO worthwhile. Sprayed my cake tin w olive oil spray, baked the cake for an hour. LOVELY. It has a thin crust on top, and such dense, moist cake. Was a bit cautious in the beginning with the recipe after reading the reviews hence I made only half the recipe. Next time I'll make it marbled. YUM!
