A lovely, dense coffee style cake, it was easy to make and tasted delicious. A semi-sweet chocolate glaze with more almonds sprinkled on top tarts it up sufficiently to meet the approval of even the most discriminating koffee klatch.

When the recipe said dry - it meant dry! I made it for an office event and everyone agreed it was awful. It was so dry it was like eating biscotti. It is a must to have coffee to dip the cake in because it's so dry.

This cake is always a great addition to our meals. It's also very easy to make some variations for your tastes - I make is a 2 layer cake and add more orange zest between the layers.
