This cake came about from an inspired moment when craving almonds. It's absolutely divine and has become an often requested recipe. One warning however, whenever I cook this cake it seems to disappear very quickly so make sure you get a slice. I've said the recipe serves 8 but it serves 6-8 depending on how much cake one likes at any sitting!
i like the recipe and would like to make this but not sure how much butter you use? - 21 Sep 2010
Oh dear! This went terribly wrong, ended up like a huge macaroon with a gooey centre. Kind of ok as a gooey pud with ice cream, but way too sweet for me. The problem could have been that I had not got any eggs, so used oil and extra baking powder as an alternative. But I have done this with plently of other cakes without problem. Shame as I was really looking forward to it!! - 13 Oct 2012
