TWD: Swedish Visiting Cake


For TWD this week, Nancy of The Dogs Eat the Crumbs has chosen Swedish visiting cake, which is a recipe that I've been wanting to try out for ages! You might be wondering why I didn't bake the cake earlier. Well, with only two persons at home, and the other party (i.e. my hubby) being a non-cake eater, I can't bake very often unless I want my waistline to expand further. So I chose to wait for the recipe to appear in the monthly baking list of TWD. It's well worth the wait, I must say! Quick and easy to prepare, the almond cake is lemony and certainly very yummy!

If you want to give the recipe a try, head over to Nancy's blog!

My hubby has a hollow leg where he hides his consumed cakes and bread.
I resent him.
Love that little pan you baked in! It looks so inviting.

Your little cake is so pretty! All I can say is that with a cake this good, your husband's loss is definitely your gain (I hope not only at your waistline!) I waited to bake this one for the same reason - they all come around sooner or later. Thanks for baking along with me this week.

This could be a perfect cake for an afternoon tea. I tried a similar recipe from Nigella Lawson and it's really good. You've a nicely baked almond cake here!
