This the other version of sugee cake that I make .I have posted my  mom's sooji cake  before this is slightly different ..This one is more buttery & rich in taste as I add powdered nuts ..Which make this cake soft ,rich & moist.You will never forget the rich taste.I baked this cake along with Rose swirl cake for my Mom's birthday.

how to make almond sugee cake/sugee almond cake

You can make your own almond meal at home just blanch almonds and wipe it clean with kitchen towel and pulse in a mixer till you get a fine powder .you could also powder it with the skin on .
Eggs give this cake a lovely texture and adds softness replacing eggs will totally change the texture and taste.
You could try replacing eggs with 1/2 cup yogurt but the taste will definitely change .
