This golden almond cake almost dissolves in your mouth — it’s soft and moist, and bursting with nutty flavour, and more importantly it has a beautiful crust. It’s the perfect cake for when you are entertaining because you can serve it with fruit and chocolate — more dessert for everyone.
As you get a whiff of the nutty and lemony fragrance of the Catálan Salt Pinch Cake, you’ll marvel at how soft and billowy it is; and as you pinch off a velvety piece, you’ll marvel at its yieldingness; and as it caresses your tongue, you’ll swoon over it’s delicate and nutty almond flavour, and moist yet airy texture.
If I had to choose a breakfast cake, it would be almond cake. If I had to choose a cake to eat an entire day, it would be almond cake again. My reasons are threefold: it is nutty and distinctly aromatic, it is moist and buttery, and it fills you up and keeps you going for hours.
