almond cake 2011

Where does the weekend go? Just a moment ago it was Friday morning and I was looking forward to a 3 day weekend and now Monday is over. Apart from doing a shopshoot, I met one of my friends for pizza at Pompei's down at Bondi, voted in the State election and made it to the gym twice. I have the aching muscles to prove it.

March is birthday month around here, including that of Farmer Andrew. He was in the city so we celebrated his birthday at my place with a lamb roast and a big helping of almond cake. Almond cake is our family celebration cake and it must have featured on the blog at least 3 times before.

As we're coming into autumn here, the hydrangea in the photo was the very last flower on the bush. Hydrangeas are one of my favourite flowers but then again as blue is my favourite colour that's hardly a surprise. 

It's a bit of a challenge trying to make the cake look a little different every time I photograph it, so this time I served the cake with blueberries and a big dollop of cream.

Farmer Andrew went home with what was left of the cake as his need was greater than mine.

I hope you all had lovely weekends. See you all again soon.

Bye for now,



  1. that cake looks utterly delicious - especially with blueberries and thickened cream!

  2. The cake is delicious but contains no flour just lots of eggs, nuts and breadcrumbs. It has loads of taste and texture but it isn't terribly sweet. I don't know if it would appeal to the masses, so I've not ever made it for my work colleagues, my test audience.
