Tosca cake

Tosca cake is a sponge cake with an syruplike almond-topping.

Tosca cake:
100 g butter
2 eggs
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup milk

75 g butter
75 g almond flakes
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 tbs flour
1 tbs milk

Melt the butter. Beat eggs and sugar in a bowl until fluffy, add the melted butter and half of the milk. Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl and sieve half of it into the mixture. Stir the mixture and then add rest of the milk and dry ingredients. Bake the cake at 175 C for about 20-25 minutes in the lower part of the oven.

Meanwhile, prepare the topping by melting the butter on a low heat. Add sugar, milk and sieve the flour and mix well without any lumps. Then add the almond flakes and stir till the topping thickens. Take the cake out and spread the topping evenly on the cake and put it back in the oven. This time, bake the cake in the middle part of the oven for about 15 minutes. Insert a skewer and check if the cake is ready. The cake is ready when the skewer comes out clean and topping is golden brown. Now it's time to enjoy this delicious cake!
