An easy Italian Almond Tea Cake is perfect for your spot of tea or coffee, with light almond and lemon flavors and a sprinkle of almond crumble on top!
There is really nothing more spectacular than a cup of tea with a slice of cake. Especially one that is not too sweet, but light and fluffy, and that looks as gorgeous on the plate, as it tastes.
I wish there was a silly story to go along with this recipe, but in truth, I was just craving cake and needed something to do with Emmett while we were flying solo last weekend. I browsed for an easy recipe for us to make together, that I had all the ingredients for. But as it always happens, I didn’t have the one thing needed – lemons. So of course a trip to the store for JUST lemons, turned into an $80 trip for what else, I do not even remember, but it was more than fruit.
So, we made this easy Italian almond tea cake. And it was a lot of fun. Emmett loves baking because he gets to add the ingredients to the mixer. But with this cake, it was all brought together in a food processor! He got to push the buttons and watch it whip. Boom! Instant entertainment.
Here’s to another easy recipe, minimal dishes, and one that the kids can help with. It’s a win on all sides.
