Chocolate Almond Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling
Made this for my son's birthday and it turned out beautifully! The only adjustment I made to this recipe was to sift in 2 teaspoons Expresso Powder with the flour, cocoa, soda, and salt mixture. We all love chocolate cake WITH chocolate icing as well, so I added cocoa powder to the frosting ingredients and doubled the recipe as well. Very moist cake with the almond coming through perfectly!! Thanks for this "keeper recipe"!!
I love this cake. It’s my birthday cake because I’m too old for candles. The only thing I’ve changed is to almonds on the frosting. It’s a moist chocolate cake
My family loves this cake! I make it according to the recipe, but use a simple chocolate ganache in place of the frosting. One of my husband's favorite cakes!
@235gbt - Really? 1/2 teaspoon is too much sodium? Wow. Did you even make the cake or did that immoral 1/2 teaspoon of salt earn it the lowly one star? In my opinion, it's a delicious cake. For the pious eaters out there just leave out the salt and don't rate a recipe if you haven't bothered to make it.
I love chocolate and almond together. This cake is very moist and delicious. I skip the frosting and drizzle chocolate ganache over the cake and garnish with toasted sliced almonds.
that sure is a lot of sodium for 1 slice of cake! I would have to do some major changes to fit n2 my healthy way of eating!
I love a hint of almond in baked goods. This homemade cake and frosting are delicious and the almond is a great addition. This cake is worth the extra effort and is pretty to look at.

I made this for my mom's birthday and she absolutely adored it. It has a perfect blend of both chocolate and almond. It's perfectly balanced so there isn't too much of anything.
When my husband and I were dating we used to plan adeventrues. For his birthday I planned an outing that included a picnic with this cake for dessert. However, I skipped the frosting a simply dusted it with powdered sugar. It was a hit and has been made every year since. This year I used a double batch of the cake recipe for my daughter's 2nd birthday to make the Taste of Home Brown Bear Cake (https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/Brown-Bear-Cake), which was also a hit. I have made the cake 2 or 3 times since as a bundt cake and frosted it with the frosting recipe from the brown bear cake. The results are a very rich and delicious treat.
