Almond Semolina Cake

This beautifully textured cake is soft, crumbly, and crunchy all at once. Semolina flour gives the light and tender interior a bit of heartiness, and almond paste in the batter keeps the cake moist.

Cook's Notes

Use a long serrated knife in a gentle sawing motion to cut through the topping and slice the cake. If you prefer, substitute yellow cornmeal; the cake will still be delicious, but crumblier.

    The ingredients list does omit the 1 1/4 cups of grandulated sugar. The directions are accurate. Nice cake with full flavor.

    The ingredient list does not call for granulated sugar; however, in step #6, it calls for remaining granulate sugar !?!
