Reviews for Cherry-Almond Snack Cake
"This is a moist and very flavorful snack cake. Would recommend finely chopping vs grinding the almonds. Was a hit at my weekly diet class."
"I used regular sugar and butter in the amounts give. I added 1/4 tsp cherry extract to increase the cherry flavor. I thought about putting some mini chocolate chips in, but opted for drizzling some melted chocolate on top which makes them taste like a chocolate covered cherry. Delicious!"
"this recipe is very good and easy to make."
"I am a diabetic and really enjoyed the taste of this Snack Cake. It seems like everything I make for the diabetic diet, the rest of my family does not, but they all enjoyed this one."
"I love the cherry-almond scent of Jergen's lotion. When i baked this moist cake my whole house smelled delicious."
