1 6-inch cake


  • ¾ cup slivered almonds

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • ¾ cup whole milk yogurt

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup chopped dates


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 6-inch baking pan.

  2. Spread almonds on a baking sheet.

  3. Toast almonds in the preheated oven until they turn golden brown and become fragrant, about 5 minutes.

  4. Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in yogurt and eggs. Mix in flour, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt. Fold 1/2 cup toasted almonds and dates into the batter.

  5. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Top with remaining 1/4 cup toasted almonds.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

For a richer bread, substitute sour cream for the yogurt.

This can also be baked in a 8x4-inch loaf pan.
