Ingredients
  • 4  ounces  white baking chocolate with cocoa butter, chopped
  • 3  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  cup  blanched almonds, finely ground
  • 1  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  cup  butter, softened
  • 2  cups  sugar

  • 1  tablespoon  vanilla
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  almond extract

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan; set aside.

3. In a very large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Gradually add sugar, beating about 10 minutes or until mixture is fluffy and lighter in color. Add eggs one at a time, beating about 1 minute after each addition and scraping side of bowl frequently. Add vanilla, almond extract, and melted white chocolate; beat just until combined.

4. Alternately add flour mixture and sour cream to butter mixture, beating on low to medium speed after each addition just until combined. Do not overmix. Spread batter in the prepared pan.

5. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove cake from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.
