I love a quick and easy cake that tastes like you know your stuff when it comes to baking!
I served this at my recent supperclub and it went down a treat!
I am a little obsessed with almonds and I feel that this cake reflects this by adding toasted almond flakes (always toast them) and almond flour. I am not a good enough baker to give ‘tips’ but I do feel that grinding your own whole (not blanched) almonds to a flour really adds to the texture and flavour of this (any) almond cake.
You can find fresh vanilla pods here, so worth having around in your kitchen, there is just something special about a beautiful and moist vanilla pod.
