READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Pesto lover

This cake has no frosting, but that's how we like our cakes! The nut topping is pretty and tastes great. You can serve this as a coffeecake. My husband eats it for breakfast once in a while, with a cup of tea. This cake is so easy to make and has a good flavor.

Delicious!! Loved the orange flavor from the juice, zest and the crunch the almonds added. Such an easy cake to make. Made for ZWT8
