      What a lovely cake. I followed the recipe, except for using almond meal instead of the slivered almonds & 2tbsp sugar. Cooked for 25 mins & the result was perfect. Served with a dollop of cream for a great gluten free dessert. Thanks for sharing.

      This is a fabulous recipe. I made this recipe x4. It is a very light cake and the flavor is wonderful. I baked it at 325 with industrial ovens on a low fan and it came out perfect.

      very good recipe! this was my first experiment in making non-chocolate flourless cake and being a huge almond fan helps greatly. i added 1 tsp of vanilla and almond extract and substituted orange zest for lemon, though - i made this for someone whos not crazy about lemons. then as a topping, i boiled down a bag of frozen berries with a bit of sugar and poured it on top while the cake was still warm (after poking holes in the top) - the result was very old fashioned and homey delicious. i would like try it without a topping as well, maybe adding some rose water to the mix for a totally different taste. thanks for the recipe! :)
