Swedish Almond Cake

Swedish Almond Cake

Although it is called a “cake”, this wonderful dessert is more like a moist, dense, chewy cookie. It is full of wonderful almond flavor and is very addictive. You’re going to LOVE it!



  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together sugar and flour.
  3. Stir in butter. The mixture will be somewhat crumbly.
  4. Mix the eggs and almond flavoring together, then stir into the sugar, flour and butter mixture.
  5. Spread evenly in a lightly buttered pie plate.
  6. Sprinkle slivered almonds on top.
  7. Bake at 350° for about 25-35 minutes until edges are light golden brown. Cut into wedges while still slightly warm. 16 wedges is a nice size for easy handling.


My sister in-law doubles this recipe and bakes it in a 9″ X 13″ baking dish. I haven’t ever tried it this way, but Annie Bananie says it works great and I totally trust her kitchen expertise!
