**This recipe makes TWO 8" cakes. Typically I slice the one cake in half and put filling in, but for this post I made one cake using both cakes**
Choose any kind of filling, raspberry or poppyseed are the popular choices in our house.
For a quick glaze mix one egg white with desired amount of powdered sugar.
Here is the Recipe as told by my Great Aunt Nancy:
3 Cups Flour

1/4 Teaspoon salt
Cut in 6 tablespoons of butter.
Reserve 2/3 cups of this mixture to place on top of cake right before baking.
Whisk together the following:
3 Whole eggs
1 cup of milk
2 teaspoons almond flavor

Bake 20-25 minuets in a 375 degree oven in two eight inch pans. Be sure to butter and flour pans.
Hope this quick, and cheap, recipe can also be enjoyed with your family.
