    Very thin cake, we didn't go for it much and we are gluten free, so I sliced some fresh strawberries adding a little organic sugar in them and let them macerate for a while to release some juice I poured that with some thick cream (keshta, which comes in cans in Middle Eastern shops) dolloped on top and a little recipe#480968 drizzled over. DH still didn't eat it really. It was pretty difficult to fold all of the almond mixture which was stiff, completely into the egg white. It was mostly like egg white meringue without crunch.

    What a lovely cake. I followed the recipe, except for using almond meal instead of the slivered almonds & 2tbsp sugar. Cooked for 25 mins & the result was perfect. Served with a dollop of cream for a great gluten free dessert. Thanks for sharing.

    This is a fabulous recipe. I made this recipe x4. It is a very light cake and the flavor is wonderful. I baked it at 325 with industrial ovens on a low fan and it came out perfect.
