I had a baker make this recipe for me for a birthday. The cake was ok, but it was no burnt almond torte. There was no almond flavoring and the icing was all wrong. They use slivered plain almonds, not the honey ones
Prantls has whole slivered almonds on the outside. That's the only thing I did differently, but it was yummy.
I was looking for a recipe of the almond torte found at Oakmond Bakery. I tried this recipe and it does not even come close. The cake was heavy. The icing was different. There was not much flavor. Not the recipe I was looking for.
