This looks like a cake we made when I was a kid — minus the topping. We used AP flour instead of cake flour and vanilla extract instead of almond. I remember we’d always have to make 2 because all us kids would cut it before it was cooled and slather it with butter and eat the whole thing before my dad got home.
