Here’s an amazing original cake recipe from Philip Wilson. He serves it with King’s Cupboard Three Chilies Chocolate Sauce, a decadent treat we introduced him to.
1-1/2 lbs Sliced Almonds
4 C hot water
1-1/2 C sugar
1 T baking powder
1/4 C potato flour
2 t vanilla extract
Grind almonds in food processor, at least 30 seconds/batch until all 1-1/2 lbs have been ground to flour.
Put almond flour into a large bowl
Add 4 cups hot water, stir, and let set in a warm place for 4 hours
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Batter should be similar consistency as pancake batter, somewhat thixotropic.
Put batter into buttered and potato-floured 9-inch round cake pans
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Cool and build cake.
