Sunshine Cake – A Delicious Buttery Almond Tart Recipe

There’s something about a tart that hits the delicious spot like nothing else. Tarts are different from pies or cake and if you haven’t had the chance to make one yet, you need to start here. This tart is called a Sunshine Cake and for good reason. You will be beaming with joy once you’ve tasted it. I’m always excited to bake anything that’s got the words, almond tart in it, and when I saw this recipe, I knew it was going to be a home run. 

Almond Tart

The crust on this almond tart is simply delicious. Tart crusts are usually made from pastry dough and are traditionally flour, unsalted butter, cold water, and sometimes sugar and the results are a firm, crumbly crust. Tarts are typically baked in a pan with a removable bottom (that’s what I used) or in pastry ring on top of a baking sheet.

If you love baking easy no fuss desserts then you are going to love this. And, all you need is a whisk to blend everything.

Notes
  1. I doubled this recipe. The original recipe called for half of all ingredients but I noticed with my tart pan it was going to be enough - you can adjust this recipe depending on the size of your pan. I used an 11 inch tart pan.

It’s as simple as two quick steps. Both mixing steps were done with a whisk.

Make sure your pan is greased well – I used Pam and coated it with flour. I used an 11-inch tart pan so be sure to adjust the recipe accordingly.
