Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup salted butter cold and cut into small cubes
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 3 egg whites or 2 whole eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen mixed berries strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries would all taste amazing

Almond Icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 2-3 TBSP hot water

Instructions

  • Prep: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Then, spray the inside of a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set it aside.
  • Make batter: In a large mixing bowl, combine and stir the flour and sugar until mixed. Next, add in the cold, cubed butter and mix quickly to incorporate so that the mixture looks crumbly. Using a measuring cup, remove ¾ cups of the crumble mixture and set it aside for later use.
  • After that, in the large bowl with the remaining crumble mixture, add the baking powder, salt, vanilla and almond extract, milk, and egg whites. Mix together for 3-4 minutes on medium-highspeed until well blended. Proceed to pour the cake batter into the prepared baking dish. Then, sprinkle the berries over the top of the cake batter and distribute the reserved crumble mixture over the top of the entire cake.
  • Bake: Place the cake in the preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Allow the cake to cool before adding the icing.
  • Toppings: In a small bowl, whisk together the powder sugar, vanilla and almond extract and hot water, stir until smooth and lump free.
  • Continue to drizzle the icing over the top of the cake and let cool until it is set. Slice, serve and enjoy!
