    Just made the cake. The taste is good, but the texture is totally wrong, It is gooey in the middle like brownies. The baking time is wrong. There is a similar Spanish Almond cake, which supposed sit in the oven about 60 min. I think it is about right.nAlso the icing is a must fir this cake. I made icing with mascarpone, coconut milk, icing sugar and lemon juice. Beautiful.nIt serves approx 6 people.
