Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Prepare an 9-inch round pan with butter (dairy-free if desired) or coconut oil. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the sugar into the bottom of the pan.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the egg yolks, ¼ cup of the sugar and the vanilla until smooth.

  4. Using an electric mixer or stand mixer, whip the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Slowly beat in the remaining ¼ cup sugar. Set aside.

  5. Whisk together the dry ingredients—flours, baking powder and salt—and add to the egg yolks. Stir together to form a thick dough.

  6. Fold in the egg whites, ½ cup at a time, incorporating them fully between each addition. The final addition should result in a smooth, fluffy batter.

  7. Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan. Bake the cake on the center rack for 30 to 35 minutes, until it is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  8. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the sides, then turn the cake out onto a serving plate.

  9. Dust with powdered sugar and top with Blue Diamond Blanched Sliced Almonds.
