I first got this recipe from one of the Reiman Publications. I have subscribed to several. It is a favorite of family and co-workers. The almond flavor is stronger the next day so I make this ahead of time. I use sliced almonds instead of walnuts.
This was quite good, not as moist as i would like but the flavor was very good! I did make it twice and added an extra egg the second time, which helped with the moistness.
absolutely fantastic, and although I have almond extract I keep vanilla on the counter, so I used that instead. I was almost out of powdered sugar, so it wasn't as sweet a frosting as it could have been, which allowed me to have a taste. That was super exciting. Can't wait to bring it to work. The leaving it out overnight, is really a good tip. It does get better the longer it sits.
It is fabulous.
This is a keeper! My son said it was the best cake ever.
