Bundt Cake:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter at room temperature
  • 4 egg whites at room temperature
  • 2 whole eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 tablespoon slivered almonds for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Grease and lightly dust with flour a bundt pan. If you are using a silicone bundt pan, don’t worry about adding flour to it, just lightly grease it.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle or whisk attachment, cream the sugar and butter on high speed for 2 minutes. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Beat in the egg whites and whole eggs, and mix on medium speed.
  • Add in the buttermilk, almond extract, and vanilla extract, mix well.
  • Add the flour mixture and mix just until incorporated. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Transfer the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan.
  • Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in comes out clean or with just a few moist crumbs.
  • Remove from the oven and place onto a cooling rack to cool.
  • Once the cake is cool, invert it onto a cake stand or plate.
  • Make the glaze by combining the ingredients in a small bowl until smooth.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the top of the cake and sprinkle with some slivered almonds on top.
  • After the glaze has set, slice and serve the dessert.
