Almond Cake

Hello Everyone,

So sorry for not has been awhile.  I've been enjoying the summer here even though it has been extremely hot and humid with very little rain.  Needless to say watering the plants has been an all consuming task, among other things.

I have been doing some baking lately.  Last week I made a homemade peach cobbler which was delicious even if I do say so myself and today I decided to make an Almond Cake.  While this recipe is time consuming, it is well worth the time spent making it.  Here are a few photos of how it turned out:

I added the slivered almonds in the center of the cake to satisfy husbands desire for "nuts"  Hah

Here is a copy of the recipe from Provision 52, a website I wrote about here: Provision 52 along with another great recipe I found from their website.

I hope all of you who try this will like it, I sure did.  With summer slowly coming to an end, I am awaiting much cooler temperatures and less tourists (I haven't been to the beach or Pier since July)so that I can stroll down the Pier and window shop once again without a rush of people and long lines.

I will be writing about several new Etsy shops I have scouted out this week, so stay tuned.


  1. That looks delicious! I don't have too much of a sweet tooth so this looks more up my alley, perfect with a cup of coffee:)

    I emailed you back this morning and sent an invite for my blog!

  2. Kris,
    It was so good to see your sweet face today! I was wondering if you were blogging any more, as it's been awhile since you posted. This almond cake looks delicious, and I love anything with almonds. Sometimes I just eat them raw or salted. I think the almonds in the middle of the cake adds a special touch. Husband will like that for sure. I'm glad you are enjoying the summer days. It's been hot here also, and I'm looking forward to cooler days in the Autumn.


  3. Hi Kris,
    Glad to hear you have been enjoying your summer ...
    We have been so busy that we totally gave up on our garden this year ... the lack of watering means it is in a pretty sorry state now and we are feeling rather sad and guilty! There has been quite a bit of rain since we came back from Italy but too late to save some of our dying plants. I vow to do better next year ... you witnessed that here!
    That cake looks good ... I could do with a large slice right now ...
    Thanks for your comments on my posts - I will catch up with them later.
    M xx
