Almond Cake from Scratch

This almond cake is the most beautiful cake ever. So simple to make. Needs only several ingredients. Following the recipe is so easy. I wrote it in few steps. Its only a bit of flour , & the rest is almond meal. It taste awesome & look gorgeous. When I make this I cant stop eating. It is that nice. Try once, It will become your favourite recipe forever.

It stays about 3-4 days out in an air tight container and can freeze about 3 months. Can leave about 7 days in fridge. All I know is that’s not going to stay longer. 🙂

The finer almond meal the best. But still you can use the coarse one too. If you like the ground whole almonds it will be nice too.  Butter has to be in room temperature too.

Recently I read an article  the benifits of almonds. Almonds help to reduce the cholesterol in the body as well as supply lots of fibre and fills you quickly when you take almond as a snack or in meals. It has lots of magnesium to help muscle functioning and also help to support healthy brain function and also good skin health. Not only that it maintains blood sugar levels and also helps weight loss. How good is that. 🙂
