I made the above sweet cake for Hari Raya Haji. The cake is lovely but if don't have a sweet tooth avoid the glaze. Here's the recipe.
Mini Almond Bundt Cakes
* 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pans
* 6 tablespoons sliced almonds
* 1/3 cup coarsely chopped almonds
* 5 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
* 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 3/4 cup granulated sugar
* 1 large egg
* 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
* 3/4 cup sour cream, or plain yogurt
* 2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
* 3 to 4 tablespoons milk
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously butter six mini Bundt pans; set aside. Spread sliced almonds out on a baking pan, and toast until golden brown. Transfer nuts to a bowl to cool.
2. In a medium bowl, combine chopped almonds, light-brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg; set aside. In another medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine 6 tablespoons butter (I did not read the recipe correctly and I made X3 and use 20 tablespoon butter instead of 18 tablespoon butter) and granulated sugar. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg; beat until combined. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla, and beat until smooth. Add 1/3 of reserved flour mixture and half of sour cream; beat to combine. Repeat. Add final third of flour mixture, and beat to combine.
4. Fill each Bundt pan with 3 tablespoons batter, and spread evenly with a small offset spatula or spoon. Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons of reserved almond-spice mixture. Top with additional 3 tablespoons batter; the batter should come to within 1/2 inch of the rims of the pans.
5. Bake until cakes are golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Transfer cakes to a wire rack to cool completely. Unmold cakes. Place cakes, flat sides down, on a wire rack placed over a baking pan.
6. Melt remaining 4 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat until color turns nut brown, about 5 minutes. Pour butter into a medium bowl, leaving behind any dark sediment. Stir in confectioners' sugar, remaining 2 teaspoons vanilla, and 3 tablespoons milk until smooth; add an additional tablespoon milk, if necessary, so glaze is pourable. Drizzle glaze over cakes, and sprinkle with toasted almonds. Serve.
To make one large Bundt cake instead of six small ones, double this recipe and bake in a 10-inch Bundt pan for 45 to 50 minutes.
My comment is you only have to make 1 mixture of chopped almond and 1 portion of glaze.
