How to prepare moist almond cake at home

Start off by putting 200g of unsalted butter in a clean bowl and use a hand mixer to beat the butter until it’s smooth and creamy. Add in 180g of granulated sugar and beat for about 2-3 minutes. Always scrape the sides of the bowl before adding the next ingredient.

In the same bowl, add the 4 eggs, one at a time, and continue mixing until they are well combined. Sift in all the dry ingredients (120g of Almond flour, 160g of all-purpose flour, 1/2 tablespoon baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt) and mix lightly before turning on the hand mixer so that the powder does not splatter in all directions. Combine them lightly for less than 1 minute making sure not to overmix the batter at this point.

Add 120g plain yogurt (room temperature),  1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract, and 70g cooking oil, and mix all the ingredients well to combine. The finished batter is smooth and silky.

Bring the prepared pan and pour all the batter into the pan. Level the top evenly and make a cut in the middle of the batter so that the top of the batter opens evenly during baking. Squeeze room temperature unsalted butter over the sheath and finally put some 20g sliced almonds on top. Bake for 40-45 minutes in an oven preheated to 180℃ (356℉).

Check if a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean — If it comes out clean it means your cake is ready. Turn the moist almond cake out onto a wire rack and allow it to cool completely. The cake smells amazing and you can feel how moist it is as soon as you cut it.
