Knotty Pine Restaurant Buttered Almond Cake
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup shortening
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
3 1/3 cups cake and pastry flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons milk
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 pinch salt
3 egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon almond flavoring
Buttered Almond Icing
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon margarine
4 cups icing sugar
6 tablespoons table cream
1 cup chopped almonds, toasted
CAKE: Cream butter and shortening together. Add sugar and beat until
mixture is smooth and light. Add eggs, one at a time and beat until
well blended. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. Add dry
ingredients and milk alternately to creamed mixture. Mix gently
until well combined.
Pour batter into two 10 inch or three 9 inch round cake pans that
have been lightly buttered and lined with wax paper. Bake at 350
degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes.
Let cool on racks for about 10 minutes then remove from pans and
CREAM FILLING: Heat 1 1/2 cups milk in the top of a double boiler,
being careful not to scald. Make a paste of remaining milk,
cornstarch, sugar and salt. Add egg yolks and stir until well mixed.
Add a little hot milk to egg yolk mixture to warm it, then stir into
milk in double boiler. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until
filling is thickened and smooth and there is no raw starch taste -
about 5 minutes. Stir in flavoring if desired.
To prevent a skin from forming on top, cover with plastic wrap and
stir occasionally during cooling.
BUTTERED ALMOND ICING: Heat butter and margarine in a small skillet
or heavy saucepan until foam on top turns a golden brown. Stir
occasionally. Do not over-brown or the flavor will be burnt rather
than roasted. Cool slightly.
Place icing sugar in mixing bowl and mix in cream, then gradually
stir in browned butter, scraping pan well. Beat until icing is
smooth and creamy.
TO ASSEMBLE CAKE: Slice each 10 inch layer in half horizontally. (do
not split 9 inch layers) Top one cake layer with filling and repeat,
topping with final cake layer. Cover top and sides of cake with a
thin layer of icing. Immediately add almonds to top or sides of cake
