    well i was slightly disappointed. its a great recipe, but the almond essence was too much and kind of overpowering. next time i think of making it i mite put in 1/2 a tsp of extract. but over all, it was not bad. good i would say. not great.

    It was easy to make and delicious! I added strawberry frosting made with crushed fresh strawberries, confectioners sugar, and a little soft butter. The strawberry was a great compliment for the almond flavoring. Yum!

    The almond extract really makes this cake recipe perfect...oddly enough, I was just looking at a recipe on my opened cookbook that sits a top of my dresser in the kitchen (it houses napkins and linens) and I proudly keep my old family' cookbook opened and change the page shown every few days...it had a recipe for a delicate chocolate cake...I now can have one for a delicate white cake thanks to you.... thanks for sharing!

    If you choose to use coconut milk (canned) it does not change the flavor. It does not leave any coconut notes at all. I strained the coconut milk first before using. :)
