Norwegian Almond Cake


Almond Cake (mandelkake in Norwegian) is quick and easy to make and OH so tasty.

If you enjoy almonds as much as I do, you will love this full-flavored cake, not only as a dessert, but with a cup of coffee for breakfast.

You can top a slice with berries and ice cream for an after dinner delight. And it is is also easy to take along to friends who will be pleased when you bring it for your next get-together.
