Many years back, my sister in-law, Lakshmi had given me some recipes for a variety of cakes. She took special care to make copies of these recipes and ensured that she gave it to me before I embarked on the train from Hyderabad to Goa. I treasured these recipes dearly, hoping to make all of them, within a short frame of time. But that resulted in a couple of years. Nevertheless, my intent remained ever strong. Finally, I tried the first cake from these recipe series, last week, which is Almond cake (Badam cake in Hindi) A simple and easy cake the prepare with some of the common ingredients available in one's kitchen larder. Isn't this a sweet way to meet your protein needs? The soft crunch of almond coupled with the crumbly cake creates a culinary effect which is deeply satiating without masking its inherent flavors.
