Recipe Ingredients for Dutch Butter Cake

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
16 almond halves (optional)

Recipe Directions for Dutch Butter Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 8 inch round cake pans, or 9 inch pie plates.

  2. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, reserving just enough to brush over the tops, about 1 tablespoon. Stir in the almond extract. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the batter by hand using a sturdy spoon. The dough will be stiff.

  3. Press evenly into the two prepared pans. Press almond halves into the top where each slice would be. Brush the tops with a thin layer of the reserved egg.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Cut into wedges to serve.
