Amazing Almond Cake

Voila! Amazing almond cake!!

I got this recipe from Bob’s Red Meal website, and I had to modify the recipe because I wanted to use honey instead of sugar. I found 4 rules for successfully swapping honey for sugar from The Kitchn and it was a big help. I was overjoyed with its moist and texture. It was utterly divine.

You might want to try the original recipe first; it was rated three stars, but you can never judge a recipe by only looking at the stars.

I know honey is usually not the best sugar substitute for baking, but it was perfect for this cake. But just so you all know, when you use honey in baking, it tends to burn easily. Wrapping foil around the baking pan and lowering the oven temperature by 25 degrees F should help. And never overbake it!!

Happy baking!!
