Old Fashioned Butterkuchen

From an old German friend of Gigi's, Don.

PART ONE INGREDIENTS

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 pint heavy cream

PART TWO INGREDIENTS

  • 1 stick sweet butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp. milk
  • 3-1/2 oz. slivered almonds

PART ONE

Beat eggs and sugar until foamy. Mix flour and baking powder and heavy cream. Mix well. (Batter will be liquid.)
Preheat oven to 400°F. 
Pour batter into greased 15" x 9-3/4" x 2" pan. Corning ware is excellent. Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes.

PART TWO

Melt butter with sugar and milk (has to run smoothly off the spoon). You might need a little more milk...
After 10 minutes baking, remove cake from oven. With a spoon spread butter mixture evenly over cake and sprinkle evenly with almonds. (Hint: mix most of the almonds with the butter mixture and sprinkle only a few on top.)
Return to oven for 10-15 minutes more.

PART THREE

Do not cut cake before it has cooled. It is easier to remove the cake with a spatula. Cut into pieces. This can be wrapped in aluminum foil and frozen for later consumption if you like.
