The original Finnish Almond Cake is absolutely moist and delicious, but add some hand picked Alaskan Blueberries and your taste buds will thank you all day.


1 1/4 C Sugar
1 Egg
1 1/2 tsp Pure almond extract
2/3 C  Milk
1 1/4 C Flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1 Stick melted butter
Blueberries (fresh or frozen-not thawed)


Beat sugar, egg, almond and milk well.  Add flour and baking powder.  Add melted butter.  Gently fold blueberries into batter.  Spray cake pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes.  Edges must be a nice golden brown color.  Cool in pan before removing.  Cake might break if you try to remove it too soon.  Sprinkle with confectionery sugar, slice and serve.

Variations:   Before pouring the batter into the pan, sprinkle with almonds slices all over the bottom.  For Chocolate Almond Cake, add 1 packet pre-melted chocolate to the end of the batter.
