Almond Torte

My dear friend Karen, an awesome teacher and fellow foodie, just announced that she is moving to Texas.  I have been in mourning...and denial.  This torte is one of the most delicious recipes that she shared with me.  I will think of her every time I make it.  Here's to Karen and to almond extract!

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
dash salt
1 cup melted butter
2 cups flour
2 tsp. almond extract
slivered almonds to sprinkle on top
Mix all ingredients except the slivered almonds together.  Pour in to a greased and floured 9 inch springform pan.  Sprinkle with sugar and slivered almonds.  Bake at 325-350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour (do the toothpick test). 
Serve it plain or with chocolate sauce, strawberries, and whipped cream.
