Wow! This is one of the best cakes I have ever had. I made 1/4 of the recipe since there was just the two of us and the amounts were spot on perfect! The directions did not mention oven temperature, but I baked it at 350F for 20 minutes using an 8" round pan and it was perfectly done. We felt it would be great with cream cheese icing, but we enjoyed it by itself with a cold glass of milk. The almond extract really gives this cake great flavor. Next time (oh yea!) I will make cupcakes or perhaps in a loaf pan as this would be great as a pound cake! It would be a hit as a wedding cake also. Awesome cake, thanks so much for sharing!
I made cupcakes with this recipe and my husband said they were "awesome." Maybe because I made cupcakes, not a cake, I thought they were a tad dry but just a TAD. But that could easily be MY doing, not the recipe's. Next time, I'll probably add more almond flavoring. I made a "wedding cake" frosting with almond flavoring too. This recipe made very light and fluffy cupcakes.
