Finally, I buy my truffles unpleasant, even relatively horrid.
This pear cake with ground almonds is a supreme example of the form of cake I like. It be in conserving with a weak French yogurt cake, which I’ve made with a mode of adaptations (lime yogurt cake, chocolate yogurt cake, almond pomegranate yogurt cake, limoncello cake).

Will it capture any class contests? No. Nonetheless when I’ve got a sizzling cup of tea and a slash of this pear almond cake for breakfast, I am no longer taking a witness.
