This is the best crumb cake ever. It has almond flavor throughout, the crunch of toasted sliced almonds, and the perfect ratio of crumb topping to cake, about 1:1. It is perfect for breakfast or dessert with a cup of coffee or tea.
My husband is not a big dessert guy. He prefers desserts that are more subtle in their sweetness like cheesecake or lemon cookies verses a big hunk of chocolate cake with frosting. We spent his birthday in the car. Not the funnest way to celebrate. We had to drive ten hours to get home from visiting family for Easter. So he ended up having two birthday celebrations. The first was the day before at his sister’s house in Michigan with my Strawberry Shortcake Pound Cake. The second was the day after his birthday when we had a celebration at home with this Almond Crumb Cake. He’s a lucky man.
2 T. butter, softened
2 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
6 tbsp butter, melted
1 cup almond flour
1 cup sliced almonds, toasted (Trader Joe’s sells them sliced and toasted)
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a square 8×8 pyrex with butter or cooking spray. In a bowl with an electric mixer combine all the batter ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Pour into the baking dish and spread evenly. Combine topping ingredients and mix until crumbs form. Sprinkle on top of the batter.
Bake at 350 for 40 min until golden. If the topping starts to get dark cover with foil for the last 10 minutes.
