Apple Almond Cake

Everyone knows I have a giant sweet tooth, and baking sweet treats fills my heart with joy. I feel like celebrating every time I create a new dessert (l mean throwing a party for real). This may sound crazy to you if you are not a food blogger but in my world food blogger’s planet, it is normal to feel this way. The recipe I’m sharing today is inspired by this video, after watching it I could not help myself and decided to make an Apple Almond Cake.

Apple Almond Cake

Did you eat something so good that you wished you were the one who invented or created it? Well, I have that feeling right now, I wish I can take the credit for this recipe, and reasons are:

One: This cake is so moist.

Two: It’s buttery.

Three: The toasted almonds went great with this cake, it not only made the Apple Almond Cake look good, but also gave it a hint of nutty flavor and a light crunch.

Four: This Apple Almond Cake looks elegant.

Five: It’s so delicious and although it’s rich, you will go for another slice.

Six: Apple Almond Cake, is not as sweet as other cakes, the sweetness is perfectly balanced.

Seven: It made my kitchen smell sooooo good.

Don’t be surprised, Apple Almond Cake has a lot of butter, and we all know that butter makes everything better! Having said that it’s better to enjoy a slice and not to over indulge.

I won’t mention how fast the cake disappeared in my house because that will be embarrassing! However, I can tell you that we didn’t feel guilty attacking this beauty the way we did. Oh, and let me mention that the best companion to this cake is black coffee with no sugar added.

I hope I tempted you enough to make you want to make this Apple Almond Cake. I am almost certain that this cake was created to please a royal family, something is very sophisticated about it.
