Deliciously moist flourless cake. Traditional cakes have their place, but this is a sweet alternative. Is delightful when served with vanilla ice cream.

This recipe calls for too much butter I'd go for 1 1/4 sticks or even just 1 stick next time. I used 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp almond extract to give it more of a marzipan like taste/smell. And I used more almond flour instead of the coconut flakes as I wanted it to be an almond treat. It was delicious just richer than necessary to be so delicious. The baked crust was amazingly delicious. Read More
