On Monday morning, my husband asked me to make a cake for his boss's birthday. Tomorrow.
"Sure, no problem, I'd love to. What kind of cake does your boss like?"
That's so helpful. So I began scanning my recipes and came up with this.
Chocolate almond cake with a silky drizzle of chocolate icing. It has just the right amount of sweetness and a homey simplicity that makes it a joy to eat. Ground almonds provide a chewy texture to this fudge-like rich cake. I think it's delicious cold. Living in a tropical climate with no air conditioning means everything has to stay in the fridge, but it was a definite benefit with this cake.
It's not your average chocolate cake, that's for sure. If you're looking for something to shake up the monotony, try this almond studded beauty. Reports from the office party included rave reviews. So, when's your boss's birthday? Make sure you bring something delicious.
