  1. Hi Linda, I am not clear on this. Is the flour in this recipe supposed to be almond flour? That would be wonderful, but you just say flour in the recipe. Almond flour seems to work much differently, so just checki g, thanks!

          1. So glad you are showing people how to cook from scratch.I have been teaching my grandaughter to do just that,we have so much fun together and I know she will pass on her knowledge too.

  2. Hi Linda, I just love and appreciate all of the important info. and recipes you share with us!
    Just a quick question about your almond cake. I don’t have a pan like that and was wondering if i were to make it in a Bundt cake pan, would I keep the temperature and baking time the same? Thank you and yes, may God bless this world!!!

    1. Hi Kathy, thank you for your kinds words! Now, I want to try making it in a bundt pan! This pan is only 2 inches deep but it’s 4.75 inches across and 12.25 inches long. I wonder how deep it would fill a bundt pan. I would try it for sure. I’m thinking it would take longer to cook. But, it’s worth a try. Keep watching through the door oven for the last few minutes. Linda

    This is probably my favorite cake however I am having great difficulty getting it to release from the pan. The first several times I made I had no problem at all but lately it just breaks up and looks horrible. I have tried every suggestion I see. Next time I’m going to use my nonstick Bundt pan. I love the design in the pan designed for this cake and wonder if it’s still visible if I use parchment paper as one review I read suggested? HELP!

    1. Hi CJB, I wish I could tell you what the problem is. If you had zero trouble the first few times you made it, what has changed? Darn! Can you grease the pan a lot more? I have never tried parchment paper. I also think the more a pan is used the better it works. But it sounds like that didn’t help you. Grease it more and let it sit as directed. Fingers crossed, Linda

    Thank you! This is the recipe I’ve been searching for. A church member makes these every year for our bake sale, and the cakes go very fast! I made it today, and it is so good! The directions are excellent, and the cake is devine. I will be making this again, and again!

    1. Hi Deborah, thank you for the 5 stars, my sweet friend! Now I want to make a chocolate one. My pans ar still in my storage unit, we are building a small home so I can’t get to those. But, I’m thinking out loud here it says 1-1/4 cup flour. I would try 1 cup flour with 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder. I love to to experiment, let me know what you try. I love chocolate cake!

    I have been making this cake for over 10 years. I usually make 2 cakes a week because my family loves it. Looking over the responses, here is some things I have done that may help your readers
    1. Pan release – spray your pan with ‘baking spray’ (sprays that contain oil and flour). Work every time. Wait 15 minutes after taking out of oven, put cake plate on top and turn. Gently pick edge of pan and flip it off. Works every time.
    2. I also make many variations:
    Cinnamon cake. When cake is Plated and still warm, paint ( brush) top of cake with melted butter and Sprinkle cinnamon sugar all over cake. I find it works better doing half of cake, then the otherside.
    Lemon Blueberry -Instead of almond use juice of a lemon and lemon zest. After you have cake ready for the oven, add blueberries one at time and spaced out about15 to 20 depending on size. I poked them down in batter with the handle of a wooden spoon.
    Orange Cranberry. Same as above only with orange juice and orange zest. Add dried sweet cranberries.
