Almond is, to me, one of the most delicious flavors. I love baking with almonds and make everything from almond filled croissants to pancakes with almonds and almond paste. This cake is crazy moist and has a fabulous flavor. The house smells so good when it is baking, you have to come over! And the one bowl thing is a delight. So, so simple.
A grower friend gave me a bunch so that I could make him some medibles to help him deal with his focus issues. He claims that this weed makes a huge difference in his ability to concentrate. Cannabis does all these amazing things. I just love it!
