  • For the topping take the butter and flour and mix using finger tips till you get a crumbly mixture.Add the sugar and sliced almonds and mix well. 
  • Sift the flour,baking powder and baking soda twice.
  • Take the room temperature soft  butter in a bowl and add sugar. Beat with a hand whisk or electric beater till light and creamy. Add curd and mix with a whisk.Finally add vanilla essence and milk.
  • Now add the sifted flour and mix till the flour is mixed well with the wet ingrediends and there are no lumps.

  • Bake in a preheated oven at 170 °  for 30 to 35 mins or till a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow the cake to cool in the pan completely and then take it out.
Note:
  • The cake is mildly sweet.Increase sugar if you want a very sweet cake.
  • I have used fine granulated sugar in this recipe.
