  • Summary

    Even in its simplicity, there's something about this buttery almond cake that just feels special. Baking it in a pie dish allows for you to serve it straight out of the vessel, whether for breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack, accompanied by nothing but a steaming cup of coffee or tea.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted, cooled, plus more for pan
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for pan
    • 2 large eggs
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
    • Pearl sugar (for sprinkling; optional)
    • A 9-inch pie plate (not deep dish) or tart pan
