About this recipe: A great alternative to Christmas cake or other celebration cakes, this is a moist and delicious almond cake that benefits from a drizzle of brandy syrup at the end. The result is a fabulous, mouth-watering cake.
I thought the cake was a little bland and entirely too sweet. However, this is a good base to start with. The texture was very nice and dense. I think I'll try using some spices and almond flour (instead of the extract) and try cutting the amount sugar in the cake next time. - 23 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Bland and way too dense. Even with simple syrup it's still missing something. - 02 Oct 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
