  • Summary

    This wonderfully moist almond cake easily goes gluten-free if desired. The cake comes together quickly in the food processor, with some apricots puréed and some folded into the batter, which infuses the whole cake with apricot flavor.

    Ingredients

    • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for pan
    • 2 1/2 cups blanched sliced almonds (about 10 ounces), divided
    • 1 pound apricots, divided
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (regular or gluten-free)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon amaretto (optional)
    • 2 cups heavy cream
    • A 9-inch cake pan (preferably light-colored metal)
