  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring regularly.
  3. Pour the melted butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar into a large bowl and stir until smooth.
  4. Crack the eggs right into the same bowl and mix until the batter is creamy and all one color.
  5. Add the salt, almond extract, vanilla extract, and flour and stir briskly until the batter is smooth.
  6. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9-inch round cake pan with butter or nonstick cooking spray.
  7. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the batter from the bowl into the greased cake pan.
  8. Spread it evenly in the pan.
  9. Sprinkle the tablespoon of sugar, then the sliced almonds, over the top of the batter.
  10. Put the pan on the middle rack of the oven and set the timer for 35 minutes.
  11. When it rings, check to see if the cake is done.
  12. It should be light brown on top, and when you insert a toothpick in the center, it should have a few sticky crumbs adhering to it.
  13. If the cake is not browned enough and the toothpick comes out too wet, put the cake back in the oven and check it again in another 10 minutes.
  14. When the cake is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool on a heatproof counter for at least 30 minutes.
  15. Cut the cake into small wedges and serve with fresh fruit.
  16. This cake will stay fresh for about a week and will freeze indefinitely.
  17. Wrap it tightly in foil, or in a plastic bag you can seal with a zip or tie.
  18. Storing nuts: Whenever you have leftover nuts, freeze them in a plastic bag closed tightly.
  19. They will keep indefinitely in the freezer.
