Karen DeMasco's Almond Cake with Apricot Preserves


This is my all time favorite non-chocolate cake. The almond paste lends great flavor and moisture. This cake is as light as an angel food cake, but with all the benefits of butter. It works really well with a variety of summer fruit—feel free to fill it it with whatever kind of jam you have made.

Bake this cake a day before your picnic—it will be even more delicious the next day.
