Pound cake with almond powder
I like making pound cake because it is easy and it reminds of my mom. I use the recipe which my mom gave me. Click here for my mom's pound cake recipe.
This time, I made a little change though. Instead of 200g of flour, I used 100g of flour and 100g of almond powder. I was not sure how it will come out but I have seen people using almond powder for baking cakes so I gave it a try.
The result was pretty good. I think it is little bit more moist than just flour. I think I should have added little bit of lemon juice. Maybe next time. This pound cake is perfect with some tea or coffee. Having this pound cake and some hot drinks brings me right back to my childhood. I appreciate my mom making homemade snack instead of store bought chips or cookies.
