  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch round cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the almond flour, semolina flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the butter and 1 cup of granulated sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, milk and almond extract, then fold in the flour mixture just until combined.
  • Transfer the batter into the prepared cake pan, smoothing with a spatula to even out. Sprinkle the slivered almonds and remaining tablespoon granulated sugar over the top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and firm in the center, and a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Let cool completely in the pan before slicing and serving.


Storage: Wrap tight in plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container and store it at room temperature for up to three days. This almond cake will last up to 5 days in the fridge.
