    Spoon and spread jam over top of cake; sprinkle with almonds. For servings, cut into 3 rows by 5 rows. Serve warm or cool. Store in refrigerator.

  • Do not use a pan that is less than 2 1/4 inches deep.
  • Almond paste is a mixture of blanched ground almonds, sugar, liquid and sometimes almond extract. It is available in cans or tubes near the baking ingredients.
  • If you own an insulated carrying case for a 13x9-inch baking dish, you can use the carrying case to take this chilled dessert to a family potluck.
