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.

MY REVIEW

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!

This recipe is delicious, and I would definitely make it again. It does sink a bit however, which is why I gave it four stars.

I will never make this cake again when I'm home alone. I loved it waaaay tooo much. My husband only got 4 out of the 10 pieces. It's a good thing I exercise a lot:)

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!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 7, 2011

I htink we will like these the next time I make them. Unfortunately, I tested them at 25 minutes and got a clean pick, however after they cooled, they would not at all cooked and fell in the middle. It was dough-city from that point on. Very disappointing. I'm surprised that no one else mentioned the problem with the baking time???
