Cardamom Almond CakeNovember 23, 2009
I’ve been madly going and just failing to blog, I have pictures and the recipes all typed up, but the bit about blogging it….I am failing! I am trying hard to catch up today, whilst I am a bit off colour. Will see how I go anyway.
I made this cake for a friend for their birthday. Only problem with this was that the power went off halfway through it! probably not even halfway through it even, and it never came back on! so the cake was nice and sunken…..
Flavour wise, beautiful! it was just great. I will have to give it another go sometime soon.
