I entered this cake in my local fair and won a blue ribbon!! I absolutely loved this cake. Very moist and delicious! A true winner!

This cake was a big hit with family and friends. I will make it again, but stir the chopped almonds into the cake batter rather than put them in the bottom of the bundt pan.

Although my guests ate it and liked it, I wasn't pleased with the texture of the cake. It seemed quite heavy. Followed recipe exactly. Any suggestions? Might try it one more time.

Recipe calls for too much flour - reduce by 1/2 - 1 cup.

Excellent! I used fresh blueberries to make this cake and my dinner guests loved it! I then took the remaining cake to work and got rave reviews.
