    To make the cake: Preheat the oven to 350ĖšF. Spray a 9-inch round cake pan with baking spray. Set aside. Combine all-purpose flour, almond flour and baking powder in a small bowl.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the cake feels springy to the touch in the center and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool cake on a wire rack for 10 minutes; then turn it out of the pan onto the rack. Cool completely.
