These cakes came out a little flatter than the usual sponge mix I use for my cakes…. perhaps because of the ground almond or chocolate? Not sure… but theyre yummy none the less and lovely with home made jam.

- 2oz sugar
- 3 drops almond essence

When cool cover in icing sugar and a dot of jam in the centre….. OR coat in chocolate icing
