  1 1/4 c  Sugar
      3    Eggs; separated
      1 ts Grated lemon rind
      2 tb Lemon juice
      1 ts Vanilla extract

  2 1/3 c  Sifted all-purpose flour

  Sprinkle chopped almonds into a well-greased 10-inch Bundt pan; set

  beating well at medium speed of an electric mixer. Add egg yolks, and
  beat well. Add lemon rind, juice, and flavorings; beat well.
  Combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Add to creamed mixture
  alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix
  after each addition; set batter aside.
  Beat egg whites (at room temperature) and cream of tartar until foamy.
  Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, beating until stiff peaks form; fold egg
  white mixture into batter.
  Pour batter into prepared pan. Press whole almond just below surface
  of batter. Bake at 350F for 50 to 55 minutes or until a wooden pick
  inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove
  from pan, and let cool completely on a wire rack. Drizzle Apricot
  Glaze over cake.
  Yield: one l0-inch cake.
  Note: Cake texture and taste is very similar to a batter bread.
  Notes: Make Almond Legend Cake every New Year's Eve for a fun
  tradition at your house. Somewhere hidden in the baked cake will be a
  single whole almond. Whoever gets the almond in their slice of cake,
  according to legend, will enjoy good fortune during the year.
