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.
