My friend Dorée and I both love almond cakes more than any other. This is her recipe for a handsome, rich cake filled with the flavor of almond. She uses almond paste both blended into the batter and broken up into pieces that are stirred in just before baking, leaving pure pockets of almond throughout the cake. Almond aficionados will want it both ways, but it’s perfectly delicious without the final addition.

This recipe is very easy to make and is also very easy to cut in h
