Tuesdays with Dorie: Swedish Visiting Cake

This week's TWD was exactly what I like--plain cake, with almonds, simple and buttery. After the heavenly cakes, something that can be mixed in a moment has its appeal. The pictures didn't turn out that well (this is becoming a theme) partly because the cake was too simple to do true justice to, but it was a big hit with the architects at work. One asked for the recipe, but then threw up her hands in horror on seeing the butter ratio. I barely noticed it myself, comparatively, it was minimal.
Swedes, come visiting, anytime!

This looks so good. Almonds and butter sound great to me! Downright healthy.

The almonds finish the look of the cake as well as the taste.

Love that first picture with the pan on the book. The dark pan contrasts so well with the white pages and compliments the black in your granite. Great job!

Your cake is so pretty and I'm glad it was a hit. Swedes can visit here too, along with their cake, but if they don't, at least the cake is easy enough for us to make ourselves, right? Thanks for baking along with me this week.

Your cake looks perfect! I loved this and my only complaint is that it was gone too soon. :)

Nice looking comfort cake. Simple is sometimes the best.

There's butter in good things! That's just the way it is. :o) Everything in moderation, right? This was a really wonderful cake.
