Lately, I have really been enjoying simpler cakes. Less flourish, more flavour. And particularly when infused with citrus. Or, as was the case on this occasion, jazzed up with the addition of an amaretto syrup. The cake, itself, was a simple almond cake. Made using almond meal and self raising flour, sprinkled with flaked almonds. Baked until beautifully golden brown. But the syrup. That was the real star. Sugar, water, amaretto – and I also added some vanilla bean for good measure. Drizzled over the cake – for an extra almond / vanilla sweetness. A delightfully tasty addition to our afternoon indeed. You can find the recipe I used here. What about you? Do you have a favourite cake at the moment?
