1.Pre-heat oven at 180C. Grease with butter and flour the sides of an 8" cake pan, line the base with parchment paper, set aside.
2.Place butter, sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl, add almond powder, flour, milk, almond extract then beat with an electric mixer. When light and fluffy, spoon into the prepared pan and spread the batter evenly. Sprinkle the flaked almonds over the top.
3.Bake at 180degC for 35 mins, or until the sponge just springs back when pressed (check when skewer inserted comes out clean.) (
Important Note: Cover the top with foil. You can make a hole in the centre. Leave foil on cake for about 15-20mins into baking to prevent the top from burning.
4.Run a thin bladed knife around the sides of the pan to loosen the cake, then turn out onto a wire rack and let cool.
