Makes two 8-inch loaves Servings


  • 2 cups whole almonds, divided
  • 3/4 cup ouzo (unsweetened anise liqueur) or Pernod
  • 3 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 3 whole star anise, finely ground in spice mill or in mortar with pestle (about 1 3/4 teaspoons ground)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup extra-light olive oil or 1/2 cup regular olive oil mized with 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons plain whole-milk yogurt

Recipe Preparation

  • Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 375°F. Brush two 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2-inch metal loaf pans with olive oil. Line pan bottoms with parchment paper; brush parchment with olive oil. Spread 1 1/2 cups almonds on rimmed baking sheet; toast in oven 10 minutes. Cool. Transfer to processor and coarsely grind (some small almond pieces should remain); set aside. Finely chop 1/2 cup untoasted almonds in processor. Boil ouzo in small saucepan until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 2 minutes. Cool.

  • Sprinkle 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped untoasted almonds over bottom of each pan. Whisk flour, ground star anise, baking powder, sea salt, and ground toasted almonds in large bowl.

  • Using electric mixer, beat egg yolks and 1 1/2 cups sugar in medium bowl until well blended (mixture will look grainy at first). Add 1 cup light olive oil; beat 1 minute. Add ouzo and yogurt and beat until well blended, about 30 seconds. Gradually add flour mixture to yolk mixture, beating just until incorporated (batter will be thick).

  • Using dry clean beaters, beat egg whites in large bowl until stiff but not dry. Fold 1/3 of whites into batter to lighten. Fold in remaining whites in 2 additions. Divide batter between prepared pans (about 3 1/2 cups for each). Sprinkle each with remaining finely chopped untoasted almonds, dividing equally. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon sugar.

  • Bake cakes until golden brown and tester inserted into centers comes out clean, about 1 hour 5 minutes. Cool cakes in pans on rack 15 minutes. Turn cakes out onto rack and cool completely. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 day ahead. Wrap in foil and store at room temperature.
