    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    Very rich! One of my favourite cakes. This is good dressed up with frosting, served plain, or with fruit. I quadrupled this recipe, and baked it in two 9"x13" pans to make a cake for my father's 65th birthday party. Note: be sure the almonds are finely ground; if they seem somewhat coarse you should run them through the food processor until quite fine.

      Excellent! My family LOVED this cake with its strong almond flavor and moist, tender crumb. I used almond meal (same as ground almonds) from Bob's Red Mill.

      Wonderful cake! Moist, rich, very tasteful. When the cake was in the oven I re-read the recipe and realized I had forgotten to add the water. But-when the cake was done it didn't seem to have mattered. Next time I will add the water though. Or milk or yogurt like some reviewers have suggested.
      Baked it in a loaf pan and it was done in exactly 45 minutes. This is certainly a cake that will be made many more times.
      Thanks for posting.

      This pound cake is to die for! I was expecting it to be bland, but it is very flavorful and moist. I did sub plain yogurt for the water, and I didn't bother blanching the almonds. Everyone loved it!
