It was awhile back that I read about this fabulous sounding Almond Cake on Susan's blog, Savoring Time in the Kitchen. I knew that I wanted to make it and even ordered the Rehrucken cake pan from Amazon., which describes the cake as one that is enjoyed in Germany and Austria. I finally got around to making it, and oh, is it ever tasty. You can read about it on Susan's post here. One of my friends let me borrow her Norske Nook Book of Pies and Other Recipes, and the Almond Cake recipe was in it, also. However, in the Norske Nook cookbook the baking time for the cake was 1 hour and 15 minutes, which in my opinion, would be way over baked!
I thought I'd use some pretty, summery teacups for my tea, in honor of the pretty cake. The two on the right are Royal Albert ones gifted to me in a set of five from my youngest son and DIL, and the one on the left is a Gracie teacup from a dear blogging friend. I love rotating my teacups so that they all get used and loved. None of the flowers came from my garden, but came from the bargain section at Kroger's, which was a tip from my daughter!
This cake is so tasty!
