I am giving it 5 starts because it is an easy recipe. Not all the ingredients I used were the same temperature (eggs and butter were straight from the fridge) but it didn't seem to matter. I used 26cm round pan for baking and it was too big, 23 would do. Make sure you use a good almond essence, I live in India and the one I bought tastes a bit artificial (I added only 1tsp). I guess you could even do without it but the cake will have less almond taste. I baked it at 175 Celsius for 30 minutes. I just tried it and I must say: easy, quick and tasty!

The recipe was great. My 9 year old daughter needed an almond recipe for a Girl Scout bake-off and won at the troop level. She advanced to the service unit level and won second place. The recipe works well as mini muffins. Bake approximately 12-14 minutes.
