Almond Snack Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
My oldest son was allergic to chocolate, so I had to find goodies to make without it. These treats filled the bill. In fact, my son is 47 now, so I’ve been making this recipe for a long time! With its great almond flavor, this snack cake is popular at bake sales.

"This cake was very, very good and very easy to whip up . . . a dangerous combination!!!! I did have to bake it for about 35 minutes to test done, but once it was done, did not have any of the previously mentioned problems with the cake not being done. We will be making this again and again!"

MY REVIEW

"This cake is excellent! I shared it with 7 others and it got rave reviews and requests for the recipe. I will definitely be making it again. The only change I made was to sprinkle half the amount of sugar called for over the top of the cake. It was great!"
