one 9 x 5 paddle loaf
I am for the time being finding out out of the country in Strasbourg, France, so I notion it acceptable to construct a basic French yogurt cake to support around for breakfast. In France, orange-flower water and almond meal are both a bit more straightforward to approach by than within the States, so I needed to construct a cake that would possibly perhaps decide encourage of “native” ingredients. I took a basic recipe, replaced half the flour with almond meal, topped the cake with slivered almonds, after which made a straightforward syrup impressed by Ina Garten’s syrup aged for her lemon loaf cake. The implications are fragrant and moist, and even feel a bit virtuous (the almond flour and yogurt add protein of route). The cake keeps for days within the fridge. Feels apt with the appearance of spring. – amusebouche —flourish food
Test Kitchen Notes
This almond cake bakes up a palatable golden brown, perfumed and moistened by the orange-flower water syrup. Almond meal lends the cake a hearty texture yet it remains light and sweet. It would possibly well perhaps pair effectively with tea and a dollop of creme fraiche or unsweetened whipped cream. – A&M —The Editors
