Almond Semolina Cake


Serves 8 to 10

  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pan
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon plus a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup finely ground semolina flour
  • 4 large eggs, separated, plus 1 large egg white
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds, with skins
  • 3 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup almond paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup whole milk


This Beautifully Textured Cake Is Soft, Crumbly, And Crunchy All At Once. Semolina Flour Gives The Light And Tender Interior Just A Bit Of Heartiness, And Almond Paste In The Batter Keeps The Cake Moist. The Nutty Flavor Is Reiterated By A Sweet Topping O
