    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.

      Delicious almond pound cake! The taste was like a Spritz Cookie in cake form, with a slight crunch in the texture due to the chopped blanched almonds! Delightful! I couldn't agree more with the other reviewers about how quickly and easily the prep came together as well. Thanks for the great recipe!

      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.
