I made this for Christmas and the whole family agreed that this was the best thing served that evening! A huge success! I can't get almond paste in Poland, so I made my own using this recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/almond-paste-15869.
this was really good. it does taste kind of like a sweet cornbread cake. i served it with a dollop of whipped cream. my dh and i both enjoyed it. i think it would be really great with a scoop of ice cream. i liked that it was a light cake, not too heavy or sweet. this is definetly a keeper. it would be nice to serve guests after dinner.
i've made this before...and was just looking for a version to print. in any case..i love it! the cornmeal gives a different texture to it.
This is a really great dessert. It is perfect just like it is and doesn't need to be eaten with anything. This is going to be one of those special desserts for us that is made around the holidays to keep it special. Easy, light, and very tasty. It was not heavy at all and was a perfect end to a big meal. When I saw Giada making it I knew it was something I wanted to try. We all loved it. Even my three young sons. Thanks.
