Hands down one of the things I look forward to my mother in law making around the holidays is this almond cake! She usually makes it without the almonds in the icing and I think after making it I would leave them out too. If you’re looking for a quick cake to bring to a pot luck you can’t get any easier than this cake……and it’s made in 1 bowl!!! We like to keep it in the fridge and eat it cold, but you can have it either way.
