Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

This coffee cake will be a hit with all chocolate lovers!
Heat oven to 350°F. Combine margarine, sugar and almond extract in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Continue beating, adding 1 egg at a time, until well mixed. Reduce speed to low. Beat, gradually adding flour, baking powder and baking soda alternatively with sour cream, until well mixed.
Spread half of batter into greased 9-inch round cake pan. Sprinkle all filling ingredients evenly over batter. Spoon remaining batter over filling; carefully spread to cover. Sprinkle all topping ingredients except powdered sugar over batter.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan. Serve warm or cool. Just before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

I would change the sliced almonds to slivered almonds, and definitely toast them first. Otherwise, this recipe was a huge hit and easy to make. It will have a permanent place in my repertoire.
