    Rather expensive for little flavor and a dry cake. Two cups of almond flour was $13. - 3/23/10

    I'm pleased to find gluten free recipes on this site, and plan to try this one. From experience with gluten free flours, I think this might benefit from the addition of 1 tsp. xanthan gum, (aids with elasticity and binding ingredients together) and 1 tsp. lemon juice. - 11/17/07

  • I ground up my own almonds instead of looking for almond flour. The taste wasn't overwhelming, but neither was it bad. My picky 10 year old likes it and has eaten more than I have. I'm going to try it with a dollop of whipped topping today. - 4/24/08

  • My husband is diabetic and he thought it was good. I think it is just okay. It would be better as short cakes with berries and whipped topping, than served plain. - 3/2/08

  • Sorry, but I found this cake to be bland. And quite gritty, reminded me of cornbread, without the corn flavor. Will use it like short cake, should be good with berries and cream - 12/2/07
