Loved it. I made my own almond meal using whole almonds so it had a bit of texture. Some friends reported it was a bit sweet but still enjoyed it. I thought the sweetness was fine. I used 1.5 tsp of almond essence which was quite strong. Next time I will used 1 tsp so the taste is more subtle.
This is one of the most delicious cakes I have ever eaten! My only problem was it broke when removed from the cake tin, but I think DH (who was assisting me!) didn't line the cake tin well enough! Thanks for a great recipe. Please post more.
What a wonderful cake for afternoon tea. I had just dished it up when a friend arrived so I gave her a piece, served with raspberries and cream. She loved it so much I had to print out you recipe. Congratulations on a great crowd pleaser.
