I made this cake last Friday and am tempted to make it today. It is incredibly light. It has no butter, just eggs, a little flour, sugar, and almond paste—which is where I got the recipe.
It's just heavenly with a strong cup of coffee at about 2:30 pm, right before the back-to-back ballet classes. The thing is—it's so light and airy it's not filing in the least, so eating half the cake seems like a reasonable thing to do. I used restraint and it was wonderful for breakfast the next morning with berries on top. I should try to make my own almond paste. I usually buy it, but I'm sure a little internet research will yield some homemade options. And I know someone out there has made it, right? It's basically almond butter with sugar added? I have no clue, but plan to find out.
