Pound Cake

Almond Cake

Pound cake is usually made with a full pound of butter but when you use almonds you don’t need all that butter as the almonds provide good monounsaturated fats that keep the cake moist and delicious! Since the almonds are also taking the place of the white flour in this recipe you get double the benefits! With no added sugar, no flour and added good fats you can indulge in this classic cake without the classic guilt! ~George
