Lely’s Cake – Crunchy Almond Cake
This is a really beautiful tasty cake, and well worth the little effort you need to take to make it.
I called it Lely’s cake, as Lely is what we all used to call my Grandmother, and since her recipe book called this cake “my almond cake” I’ve very suitably (I think) named it after her.
It’s a two step/layer cake with a spongy base and a crunchy ,but not too crispy, Almond crust.
It tastes of decades gone by and has that homely perfected taste that only a time tested recipe can give you.
