This simple little cake is only a few ingredients but still packs a great flavor. It has a nutty taste from toasting the almonds and the honey makes it sweet but not a sugar overload.
When trying to figure out the decoration for the cake, because I knew I wouldn't like the look plain, I thought of powdered sugar. And then I thought, Bah every cake that doesn't have a frosting, I dust with sugar. So then after much debating, I somehow thought of, Let's stab the whole thing with pieces of brittle. The brittle it a nice little candy treat in your piece of cake and you also get the joy of having a cake that looks like a little monster!
So I've seem to have gotten a new job! Well, I'll go through my one week temporary to see if we all get along together as a team and that I'm not a complete baking disaster. But after all that.... new job! I've taken myself out the grocery store game and into a proper 'from scratch' bakery. Its going to be a bit of a commute, but totally worth it. I'll let you know all about the lovely new shop I'll be working at in San Francisco after the trial period. And after I get the ok to blog about the sweet shop. I don't want them thinking, Who is this girl, whose on a coffee buzz all the time, with a dry monotone voice and a habit of constantly calling everything lovely, writing all about us on the internet?
