This is one gorgeous, delicious cake! I found that people either love almond baked goods or hate them. The lovers swooned when they tasted it. It's light as air, moist and very 'classy' tasting, as in gourmet baking, I sprinkled sliced almonds on top of the icing, also made mini cupcakes and small loaves to give as gifts, and watched people scarf down four or five of the mini cupcakes in one sitting!
This is such a good cake recipe! I made this as Rita wrote it and it turned out wonderful, moist and delicious. This recipe is open to so many tweaks and I think next time I'll sprinkle sliced almonds over the glaze....pretty and delicious! Thanks Rita, good one!
