Almonds and cakes are such a great mix for making delicious, creative, and fun cakes. Almond flour and almond milk make for great bases for these tasty cakes, and adding almond butter and almonds themselves really enhance the texture, flavor, and most importantly your satisfaction.
From the Food Monster App, here are 15 cake recipes containing almond ingredients that we believe will bring you lots of almond joy!
