There are two tricks to give this cake its rustic, nutty texture: Grind whole, skin-on almonds instead of using almond flour, and add a bit of polenta to the batter.

Almond Cake with Pears and Crème Anglaise
This basic sponge cake is baked with fragrant almond flour, split in half and filled with a layer of tender pears. Cooked in butter in a covered pan, the pears steam in their own juices, releasing a syrupy sauce all their own.

This is one cake that doesn't require any icing. Enjoy it with a cup of coffee or dessert wine.
