The simplicity of plain cakes is delightful. I love a moist, soft, buttery plain cake with my morning coffee. I have so many coffee cake recipes up on the blog. Because these are so unfussy and yet pack a punch of flavor.This Almond Loaf Cake is another great recipe which I have jazzed up with some chocolate Glaze and toasted almonds. You can enjoy it without the glaze too. It would still taste delicious.
The rich buttery crumb of this Almond Loaf Cake with Chocolate Glaze and toasted almonds is heavenly! I had made this for Father’s Day last month. My dad loves pound cakes, praline cakes and all kinds of coffee cakes. The Almond Loaf Cake with Chocolate Glaze and Toasted Almonds has made its place in his list of favorite cakes! He enjoyed a fat slice with his cup of morning tea. Bliss :).
My dad is weird 😀 .He makes such a fuss if I buy a gift or bake a cake for him. But if I don’t, he feels bad that Mother’s day was such a big celebration. And no one cares for Father’s day! So, I eventually realized, he wants to feel special while pretending not to care :P. Confusing!
Anyways coming back to this super easy Almond Loaf Cake. The buttery soft cake is a lovely bake with a moist crumb that just melts in the mouth. The chocolate glaze and toasted almonds are optional but strongly recommended :). After all, who doesn’t like dessert for breakfast!
You could also bake this Almond Loaf Cake with Chocolate Glaze and Toasted Almonds in a bundt pan or a regular round baking tin. It’s such a simple recipe and I often make it for our luxurious weekend breakfast!! Of Course,cake for breakfast is a luxury 🙂
