AlmondCake_OnionCreekDo you ever find yourself in the mood for home baked, from-scratch cake — but you don’t want to put a lot of time or work into it? This recipe is perfect for those times. It’s simple but rich and uses mostly materials you already have. You don’t even have to cream the butter, just melt it and stir with the other ingredients. No need for frosting either, you just sprinkle on a simple topping of sliced almonds and sugar. This almond cake recipe comes courtesy of the Inn Above Onion Creek in Kyle, TX, featuring a spa and all the homemade cookies you can eat!
