      My family enjoyed this chocolatey and rich slice of heaven! I was lazy and didn't want to roll out the almond paste, so I just thinly sliced it and placed the slices in the middle of the cake batter (without adding the confectioner's sugar). As it baked, the top cracked so it wasn't very pretty, but some whipped cream and a few berries disguised it well! I would definitely serve this with some tart berries or a sauce to offset some of the richness! Next time I am adding a layer of raspberries on top of the almond paste before baking. If you like almonds and chocolate you will love this recipe! Thanks for posting!
