 Ingredients List

  • 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup lukewarm milk
  • 8 tablespoons butter (1 stick)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 ¼ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup blanched almonds


Combine yeast, lukewarm milk, and 1 tablespoon sugar in a medium bowl. Set aside for five to ten minutes, until yeast starts to bubble.
Add enough flour to this mixture to make a spongy dough, about ¾ cup. Set aside to rise again.
Cream the butter and sugar. Beat the egg yolks and add them, then add this mixture to the sponge.
Add the rest of the flour, salt, and vanilla.
Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks, then gently fold them into the dough, along with the almonds. Allow the dough to rise until doubled in bulk, about 90 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Pour the dough in a buttered bundt pan and bake for 45 minutes.
