  • Summary

    This almond layer cake is rich and full of almond flavor, without the need for extra almond extract. Amaretto is an under-used liqueur in my cabinet, and it pairs nicely with the almond cake and thin layer of chocolate.

    Ingredients

    • 7 ounces Odense almond paste (thinly sliced)
    • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar ((297g))
    • 3 large eggs
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
    • 3/4 cup sour cream
    • 1/4 cup buttermilk
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour ((284g))
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 pound 2 sticks; unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into 1-inch pieces ((227g))
    • 8 large egg whites
    • 2 ¼ cups granulated sugar ((446g))
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • 1 ½ pounds 6 sticks; unsalted butter, room temperature ((678g))
    • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    • 2 tablespoons Amaretto liqueur
    • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted (to use after the cake is cooled) ((85g) )
