Ground Almond Cake No Flour
Ground almonds have a delicious flavor in a cake. And, when they’re the star of the cake, it’s even more tasty. I don’t grind my almonds into a dust. No, I like to leave some of them in small pieces. That way when I take some bites, I know I’m eating almond slices.
Italian Almond Cake
Yes, this recipe is very similar to an Italian almond cake. Since there’s no baking powder in it, the cake doesn’t poof up or rise. It’s more dense, yet light. If that makes sense?
French Almond Cake
French almond cake is another type of recipe that stars almonds.
The French almond version is more of a little tea cake. It’s usually rectangular in shape, but it can be round. And, it’s got a buttery golden hue, which gives it the nickname ‘Financiers’. When the rectangluar cake is cut, the slices look like little bars of gold, hence, financiers. I love to learn things like this!
