  1. Begin by crafting a smooth custard. Combine one egg with 50 grams of sugar, vanilla sugar, and cornstarch in a mixing bowl. Blend until you achieve a homogenous mixture.
  2. Pour in 250 milliliters of milk gradually, whisking diligently to prevent lumps.
  3. Move this mixture into a pot and warm it over a medium-high flame. Stir persistently until you notice the mixture thickening to a custard consistency, then take it off the heat and let it come to a normal temperature.
  4. Take a new bowl and whisk together two eggs with the remaining 100 grams of sugar and a dash of salt until the mix is airy and voluminous, roughly 3-4 minutes.
  5. Now, introduce 100 milliliters of milk and the vegetable oil into the egg fluff, stirring gently.
  6. In a separate bowl, mingle the flour, baking powder, and almond meal together.
  7. Carefully fold the dry blend into the moist concoction, making sure not to overwork the batter.
  8. Preheat your oven to a gentle 170°C (340°F) and prepare a 27 x 18 cm baking pan with a sheath of parchment paper.
  9. Decant the batter into the pan, evening out the surface with a spatula.
  10. Lavishly scatter the almond slivers on top.
  11. Bake in the center of the oven for 40 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when poked in the center.
  12. Allow the cake to cool in its pan before transferring it to a cooling rack.
  13. Once cooled, sprinkle over with icing sugar to create a snowy effect.
  14. Cut into desired sizes and serve this golden almond sponge cake with a warm beverage or as a standalone treat.

Enjoy your homemade cake with a delightful almond flavor and a soft, fluffy texture that’s sure to impress!
