Wicked Good!

This is a great recipe! Moist and flavorful. I used vanilla extract and next time I will use almond because I think it could have used a little more flavor. As with everything, I have difficulty keeping the choc.chips floating in the cake. They all sank to the sides and bottom. I'd like to know how to fix that. Other than that it is a great recipe and I will make it again and again even though it is not incredibly's good!

Best-Ever Had Nestlé Chip Almond Cake

This IS very good! - but very high in fat, calories, and sugar; a small piece is all one needs, but it's very tempting to eat more. Very good almond taste, which my family loves. A delicious recipe to make for special occasions and not an 'everyday treat'. I don't know why it is rated as 'challenging' though. It is very easy to make, and the directions are very clear and easy to follow.

I had read this recipe before and copied it, set it aside and today when I needed a "special cake" I thought of this one. It IS in a word-DELICIOUS. That says it all, easy to make as well. Thank you for giving us such a great site to share with each other.

Better than I expected

I tried this cake on the recommendation of a friend thinking it would be just okay. It is not just okay. It is delicious!
