Total time

0 minutes


  • 1 cup (two sticks) room temperature butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ of a 7 oz tube of almond paste (crumbled)
  • 3 eggs ((beaten))
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 3 tbsp amaretto
  • 1 cup Poppy seeds
  • glaze
  • 1½ cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • milk or cream to thin


  1. Set oven to 350F
  2. Cream the butter, sugar and almond paste together.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, while beating.
  4. Mix the buttermilk with the almond extract and Amaretto in a measuring cup.
  5. Whisk the dry ingredients together in a small bowl with the poppy seeds.
  6. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the wet to the butter, beating just to combine.
  7. Spoon the batter into a greased tube pan and smooth out the top.
  8. Bake for about 45 - 55 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Tube pans vary in capacity and shape, so baking times will vary as well.
  9. Cool completely before glazing.
  10. For the glaze mix the confectioner's sugar with enough milk or cream to thin to a glaze consistency, and add in the extract. You can also use Amaretto to thin the sugar if you prefer. Sprinkle a few poppy seeds or sliced almonds on top if you want to.
