Super easy, super yummy. However, if you're expecting a light and fluffy cake, you'll surely be disappointed. If you're expecting a dense, pound cake-like feel, again, you'll be disappointed. I would compare this to a frangipane cake, made with almond paste, much like the description says. It has a wonderful chewiness to it, which doesn't necessarily sound appealing in a cake, but you just have to try it to see what I mean! Thumbs up!
