And for dessert.....drum roll please.......chocolate almond cake!!!! Now, this was the part I was most nervous about! As I mentioned earlier, I LOVE to cook, but I'm not much of a baker. And to be honest, I have not baked a single thing since we moved to the our house in the mountains. We live at 9000 feet, and baking gets tricky at that altitude. So, I had completely avoided it until now. I did some research on-line about baking at high altitudes and found a lot of vague advice, a lot of "you just have to experiment with it and see what works" type of advice, and then finally some specific recommendations for baking above 7000 feet. I tried that last bit of advice, and lucky for me, it worked!!
Here's the cake! It was delicious!!! Tony even took a piece to have with his lunch today!!!
And a close-up! It was REALLY YUMMY!!! And I think this is the first cake I've ever made completely from scratch!!!
Just wanted to share my kitchen success story with you all! Hope you enjoyed it!
Enjoy the rest of your day!!! And while you're on the computer, hop on over to Lisa's blog---She's giving away an AMAZING prize package!!! Click HERE to check it out! Good luck!
