Gold Dust Almond Cake

Gold Dust Almond Cake

Meringue:
4 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1 tsp almond extract

Cake:
4 egg yolks
1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp almond extract
2 TB milk
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder

For the meringue: Beat egg whites and slowly add sugar.  When the egg whites are half stiff add the almond extract.  Beat until stiff and then set aside.

For the cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour 2 8" round cake pans.  Beat egg yolks, sugar and butter until creamy.  Add almond extract and milk and mix.  Stir in the flour and baking powder.

Divide the cake batter evenly into the two prepared pans.  Then divide the meringue and spread over the tops of the two cake batters.  Bake for 25 minutes or until the meringue is golden brown.  Gently remove from the pans while warm.  Place layers on top of each other.

Cake may be made into 3 or 4 layers instead of 2 by cutting portions into smaller pieces.
