Tuesdays With Dorie – plain and Simple Almond Cake

This week’s project was fun. My husband started to dream about chopping up all kinds of Ritter Sport to go into the cake. I told him that, if he wanted to get creative, he would have to make the cake. 

Of course, it’s moments like this that really make me realize how much I take for granted knowing the techniques involved in making a cake like this. I wound up walking him through the process. And we wound up getting some milk chocolate Ritter Sport chopped up into it, too, though not the Pralines and Cream bar he wanted (we couldn’t find it). It all turned out magnifique!

And oh! Was this ever delicious! I helped myself to a second piece. It was so tender and flavorful, and dare I say the word… MOIST. 😂 I am looking forward to this being leftover when I get back from my business trip at the end of the week.
