Fabulous almonds, part 2 – Almond cake
Merveilleuses amandes, deuxième partie – Délicieux gâteau aux amandes
I love this cake, I love it even more because I used the almond pulp that was left while making almond milk. So there is no waste in the process.
In France in January we celebrate Epiphany, and we eat the traditional Kings cake or galette des rois made with frangipane (mixture of butter, eggs, sugar and ground almonds).
I adore frangipane, so last week I made a galette des rois for some guests who came for dinner, since then I have been hooked on almonds. I have been basically trying to reproduce a galette des rois flavor in a cake…et voilà, c’est réussi!
This cake is very moist, so soft and if you like frangipane, you will love this cake. I am very happy about the results and will make this cake again and again after I make almond milk.
