How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine 2 1/4 cups flour and baking powder in bowl; set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine 1 1/3 cups sugar and 1/2 cup butter in another bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Add almond extract. Add flour mixture alternately with 3/4 cup milk, beating at low speed after each addition just until mixed. Stir in toasted chopped almonds.

    Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine 1 cup milk, 3 tablespoons flour and salt in 1-quart saucepan. Stir with wire whisk until smooth. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 4-5 minutes or until mixture thickens and just starts to boil. Remove from heat. Set aside; cool 15 minutes.

  6. STEP 6

    Combine 1 cup butter, 1 cup sugar and almond extract in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Continue beating, gradually adding 1 tablespoon warm milk mixture at a time, until light and creamy and sugar is completely dissolved. Frost cooled cake. Decorate with fresh berries and sliced almonds.
