Chowtimes.com except for I have added some almond extract to enhance the flavor of the cake further.
Also I have used the homemade ground almond. I ground the almonds in the blender into a medium coarse powder. Grinding the almonds finer may result in a oily sticky powder. So make sure to grind the almond into a bit coarser powder.
All purpose flour - 3/4 Cup
Milk - 1/2 Cup (At room temperature)
Canola oil - 1/3 Cup
Eggs - 2 nos. ( At room temperature)
Sugar - 1 Cup
Ground almond - 1/4 Cup ( I have used home made almond powder)
Baking powder - 3/4 Tsp
Almond essence - 1/2 Tsp ( Optional)
Chopped almonds - 2 Tbsp
Pre-heat the oven to 350 F. Grease the cake pan ( I used 8' by 1 1/2' round cake pan) with oil and dust it with flour.
Beat the eggs into a large mixing bowl. To this add the sugar and mix it well. Then add the oil, flour, ground almond, baking powder, almond extract, milk and mix well without any lumps.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 25 minutes or until the tooth pick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
