Almond Cake

If you're looking for a buttery, rich, dense, great with a cup of coffee kind of cake...look no further!

My aunt sent me this recipe and while my Grandma was visiting we put it to work. Grandma made this beautiful cake.

The ingredients are few and it's easy to assemble if you're short on time.

You won't be disappointed!
