Scandinavian Almond Cake


I received this fabulous pan as a gift along with a recipe for Scandinavian Almond Cake. The pan was recently purchased at a German Christmas Market and I couldn’t wait to try it out.


I made the cake as the recipe indicated but the next time, I would cut down on the sugar by at least 1/4 cup because it is very sweet…at least for me! I also added sliced almonds to the top of the cake, ya know, since it is an almond cake and all….

Spray pan generously using cooking spray immediately before pouring batter into pan.
