    Delicious! A couple of changes: 1 cup almond meal instead of whole almonds, Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur) instead of Amaretto (love that element!) and sprinkled toasted almonds on top. We brought the cake to a party and loved it so much, we made another when we got home! That good. Light and soul satisfying.
