Almond Cake

I always look for easy recipes just so I get confident as I am very particular if the cake does not turn out right. This recipe looked good and is easy to follow. I must say this cake is very delicious but had such a sugar rush as it was just too sweet! Honestly this cake is best eaten couple of days later as it didn’t taste as sweet as it did fresh out of the oven. But can you blame me for not digging in when the cake is ready? 🙂
