Wow, was this good MomLuvs6. Truly an outstanding cake. I absolutely adored the flavor and texture of this cake. It reminded me of meragne but with a sturdier texture, light, tender, fluffy and crispy on the outsides. I love what the ground almonds do for this cake. It was easy to make with fabulous results. Easily the best cake I have made on this site so far. I split the cake added fresh stewed strawberries and vanilla whipped cream and garnished with a little powdered sugar. This beautiful treat will be going into my Best of 2011 cookbook. Thank you to momaphet for recommending it and also a big thank you to MomLuvs6 for sharing her recipe with all of us. Made for best of 2010.

Yum! This is a denser version of a genoise that I've made for years and we really enjoyed it. I added almond extract and served it split with strawberries from the garden and whipped cream. This would make a great picnic/ brown bag snack as it doesn't seem to crumble. Thanks MomLuvs6! Made for ZWT6 ZINGO by one of the Unrulies Under the Influence

Oh, wow is this good! Such a pretty presentation, as well. I used some special blackberry preserves I've been saving. And they were well worth saving for this! Made a lovely dessert! Thnx for sharing your recipe, MomLuvs6. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6.

First thing - I loved that this made a little cake and that there were no leftovers left for mom to eat, secretly. Secondly - outstanding flavour! A little more work than I'm used to in a cake (I hate getting out the 2nd mixing bowl) but so good and worth it. When cool, I split in half and we ate it like shortcake, with lightly sweetened whipped cream and raspberry preserves in the middle, and a dollop of each on top for decoration. Thanks for such a good recipe!

This turned out very well. I love the flavor of the cake itself. I cut it in half, filled it with Cool Whip, Strawberries Jubilee - Fat Free!, and then topped it with more cool whip and more strawberries jubilee. Wow! I will make this again and again. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT6.
