½ cup Fine Yellow Cornmeal

½ cup All-Purpose Flour (Maida)

1 tsp. Baking Powder

1 stick or (4 ounces) Unsalted Butter (softened)

¼ cup Almond Paste (cut into ½" pieces)

1 ¼ cup Confectioners' Sugar

Additional Confectioners' Sugar (for dusting)

½ tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract

2 Eggs

4 Egg Yolks

¼ cup Sour Cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Grease an 8-inch round cake pan with vegetable spray. An alternative is to butter and flour the cake pan.

Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and almond paste on high speed until smooth, about 5 minutes. Reduce speed to low and slowly add confectioners' sugar. Mix until thoroughly combined and light and fluffy. Raise speed to high and add the vanilla extract, whole eggs and egg yolks, 1 at a time. Mix until well combined. Reduce speed to medium and add the sour cream and dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated.

Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the surface with a spatula. Bake in the lower third of the oven for 35 minutes, or until the cake is golden and pulls away from the sides of the pan. Transfer pan to a wire rack and let cool. Remove from pan and dust with confectioners' sugar.

Place a pan filled with 8 C. boiling water in the oven to create a moist oven.

To remove cake from pan, take a knife and run it around the edges. Place a cardboard disc on top of pan and turn cheesecake over onto it. Remove parchment paper. Place your serving dish on the bottom of the cheesecake and turn it over.
