1 (9") cake.

This moist, dense European-style cake is rich enough to serve without the jam, but don't forget the coffee.

How to Make It

Step 1

Lightly grease and line bottom of a 9" springform pan with parchment paper; set aside.

Step 2

Beat almond paste, butter, and granulated sugar at medium speed with a heavy-duty stand mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition. Beat in liqueur.

Step 3

Combine flour and baking powder; add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Spread batter into prepared pan.

Step 4

Bake at 325° for 1 hour or until cake is golden and edges spring back when lightly touched. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Dust cake with powdered sugar, and serve with Cranberry Jam.

THe torte had incredible flavor and a lovely texture. My husband, who isn't a big dessert fan, loved it and my mother couldn't stop complimenting me. I brought the leftovers to the office where I received more compliments and a request for the recipe. Easy to make and receives high marks for good presentation. A great recipe for little effort.
