Sorry I haven’t been posting consistently these past few weeks. I have been extremely busy preparing to move out of my apartment and dealing with everyday situations. On a more positive note, I have a wonderful recipe to share with you!

Almond Bundt Cake

There are two separate special occasions that inspired me to create this cake. This summer, I will be going to Greece to baptize the sweetest and cutest baby girl. The baptism will follow the parents’ wedding ceremony. It is going to be a beautiful day full of celebrations. In September, my cousin is getting married and I am her Maid of Honor. I am so excited for her wedding day and to be a part of such a special moment in her life!

Almond Cake

In Cyprus and Greece, on certain special occasions like when you get married, or when you baptize a baby, it is customary to offer your guests a sweet treat known as “kerastika”. These days, there are a variety of “kerastika” but, the traditional ones are a type of almond cookie. Each region has their own version of this cookie, whether they are amygdalota, pastitsia, or egrolavi. The main ingredients are the same – sugar, ground almonds, and egg whites. These cookies resemble macarons – crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside.

I experimented a little bit and came up with the perfect recipe for a cake version of these cookies. The cake has a perfect crust with the right amount of crunch. The inside is moist and soft with a chewy center that is similar to marzipan.

Hibiscus Glaze Cake

I used Anthony’s Goods Premium Almond Flour. Like all of their products, the almond flour is top quality and adds a great flavor to the cake.

 

I topped the cake with a very simple and easy to make hibiscus glaze. The glaze really takes the cake’s presentation to a whole different level and creates an eye-catching “wow” effect.

Enjoy this cake with your afternoon coffee, or anytime throughout the day – you certainly don’t need a special occasion to make it! This cake will stay moist for about a week, if it isn’t eaten by then!
