Just before Christmas last year whilst I was watching the final episode of Homeland for this season and being on FB (yes! I multi-task), I saw this amazing photo of this almond cake on Facebook; baked by my girlfriend Jo. OMG!! I wanted to have a piece there and then, with vanilla ice cream or double cream. It was absolutely wicked. I have a weakness for anything baked with almonds in them. Jo was quick to share the recipe when I asked her (thanks a mil Jo!) which I bookmarked to bake at a later date.
I baked this beautiful and tasty cake to take with us when we visited our friends in the Southern Highlands.
This one's for you Jo, for always being so kind and generous to share recipes and cooking/baking tips.
