Coffee Almond Crunch Cake~
I cannot believe it's been around since at least 2008~This recipe I mean~
By the time I got it out of the oven..and it was cool enough to dust and decorate with wild violets..the clouds had come in..thunder clapped..the skies were black and it started to pour.
Overexposed from ..well from my fault.
So please forgive the pics of an aboslutely delicious cake..
It's a Gordon Ramsay cake and believe me..it is addictive..super easy to make..you should enjoy coffee because you certainly can taste it..served warmish ..wowsers.
Really..try it and tell me:)
I popped half over to our daughter across the street and she printed up the recipe right away..that's how good it is..super moist meets super crunch.
I made mine in a 9 inch sprigform and had to bake a tad longer.
My tulips on the other hand are not a raging success:(
Only about 6 Parrots developed buds..and the stinking squirrels bit the heads off..so as I walked that area..all I saw were the tops w/ stems chopped off..one was nibbled on..the rest not.I guess the glutton decided it was not in his top 5 food choices and left the rest to rot there.
That's why I have those squirrels..they do have cute faces..but I know their nature.Hoodlums.
So I gathered the tips and some FMNs and wrapped them..
I didn't wait all winter to throw them away..so I played with them..and now they are in a vase on my windowsill and I hope they will open.
Hope I didn't offend all the squirrel lovers.
Went to a fave garden centre for certain things..been going for over 35 years I am certain..I have a couple of favorite nurseries..only one is far..Jasmine..the others are perfectly doable for me..who stopped driving far..a few years back.
The owners and staff are so friendly,helpful and knowledgeable.
I picked up some herbs..a mature Cobea Scandens,a mature Morning Glory..some Lantana..Pansies..and that trailing blue plant I love...Scaevola Blue Lagoon.
Still need impatines..oh and I got a big rhubarb plant..I changed mine of place and we cannot find it..I have surmised it hated the move.
So an orphan came home with me.
And quite a few others today~
Have a beautiful weekend~:)
It's a long one here ..
