My neighbor brought me this cake as a gift. I could not stop eating it, it is DELICIOUS! She had poured some Amaretto over the top before wrapping it, enhanced the almond flavor. I immediately looked up the name and found this recipe so I can make more. My husband is upset that I'm eating the whole thing! So will bake him another one. My neighbor had made several of them and frozen them to use or gift when needed. I think I will do the same. Thank you for posting this recipe.
