milling mondays: whole wheat almond cake

If you love almonds, you will love this cake. This cake is absolutely yummy. It reminds my of my farmor's baking. This cake is moist and the perfect amount of sweet.

Whole Wheat Almond Cake
 recipe adapted from good housekeeping

1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (2/3 soft wheat berries and 1/3 hard wheat berries)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat your oven to 350F.
Sprinkle the almonds on a prepared 10inch pie dish.
Mix together the egg, sugar, milk, and almond extract until smooth.
If you mill your own flour, grind your soft and hard wheat berries. I of course use my WonderMill.

Pour the batter into the prepared dish with almonds.  
Bake the cake for about 40 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
Let the cake cool in the dish before cutting.
