Contrary to what you may think, this is not a Southern recipe, but one adapted from an Italian cook you know very well, Giada de Laurentis. I published the recipe awhile back in my country blog which is really a recipe box for recipes that appeal to me from all sources. Some of them I have tried, others I have not. I don't know what took me so long to try this one. It is the best almond cake I have ever had and it is by far the best accompaniment I have ever found for fresh berries. That includes shortcake.
As a bonus, you will also note it has very little flour, perfect for those of you cutting back on wheat. This is really what prompted me to try it this weekend and boy, am I glad I did. Wheat or no wheat, this is a keeper.
Since it seems like ages that I last posted a dessert, I decided to push back the recipe I had planned for today and share this one with you. It was enjoyed by all over the long weekend.
On another note, you may have noticed that the latest two posts require you to click to another page to view the recipe. This is being done for a reason, a good one! Bear with me for awhile longer and you will see what's in store.....I am sure you will like it!
