Chez Panisse Almond Torte

🍽 Serves ⏲ Total Time
12 1.58 hours

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🍬 1.25 (248 g) cups granulated sugar
  • 🌰 200 g almond paste
  • 🧈 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 🍦 1 tsp vanilla
  • 🥚 6 eggs
  • 🌾 130 g all-purpose flour
  • 💨 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 🧂 0.25 tsp salt
  • 🍬 some confectioners' sugar

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 9 inch springform pan

📝 Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Beat the granulated sugar with the almond paste until the almond paste is in fine pieces. Or, better, pulverize it in a food processor. Beat in the unsalted butter and the vanilla, then cream the mixture until it is light and fluffy. Beat in the whole eggs, one at a time - the eggs should be at room temperature - beating well after each addition so the eggs are thoroughly mixed in.

Step 2

Mix the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt, and beat in just until thoroughly blended.

Step 3

Butter a 9 inch springform pan and turn the batter into it, smoothing the top evenly. Bake for 1 to 1.25 hours (mine baked for 1.25 hours) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the center feels springy when you push it gently.

Step 4

Let cool for about 20 minutes before releasing the sides of the springform pan. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
