I made the cake part as described, and it made a dense but deliciously flavored almond cake. I baked it for the minimum time (42 minutes) but the bottom (which become the top) browned a little more than I wanted so next time I'd bake for fewer minutes. I didn't have vanilla paste so I scraped out the inside of half a vanilla bean and added that to the milk/powdered sugar mixture which worked just fine.
Did anyone make this? There is no leavening agent so it didn’t rise for me at all. It tastes good but as my husband said it’s more like marzipan thank Cake.
Lost me at the 1st ingredient ... uncommonly expensive, but great for those with money to spend.
