I was introduced to this delicious almond cake by the queen of Twitter herself, Lovelylanvin (this chick has over 47K tweets to date). Lovelylanvin kept tweeting about this almond cake she had baked. I got curious and asked for the recipe. Boy am I glad I did!! This cake has a really nice almond flavor, soft, spongy texture, and is not overwhelmingly sweet. With just a light dusting of confectioner sugar and a couple scoops of ice cream, it makes the perfect dessert. The recipe comes from The New York Times and can be found here.
I had a bag of frozen raspberries in the freezer. I thawed some out and spooned it over the cake for that extra "kick". Mmm....not every cake needs a layer of frosting on it to be good. :)
