Tarta de Santiago is a no nonsense almond cake that requires little time and even less skill or effort. Naturally gluten-free cake for the long weekdays.

As I lately have some time, I was searching on the web a few days ago. Trying to find new, exciting thoughts, inspiring dishes that I’ve never used before, to delight my loved ones with. Hunting for a long time unfortunately could not come across any interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I came across this scrumptious and easy treat by chance at Suncakemom. It looked so mouth-watering on its snapshot, that required instant action.

It absolutely was not difficult to imagine the way it is created, its taste and how much my hubby will probably like it. Mind you, it is quite easy to keep happy the man in terms of puddings. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyhow, I visited the page and simply followed the simple instuctions that were accompanied by nice snap shots of the operation. It just makes life rather easy. I can suppose it’s a slight effort to take pics down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you normally have gross hands thus i pretty appreciate the time and effort she placed in to make this post .

Having said that I am encouraged to present my own formulas in a similar fashion. Appreciate your the idea.

I was fine tuning the initial mixture create it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to say that it was an awesome success. They loved the flavor, the consistency and loved getting a delicacy such as this in the midst of a lively week. They ultimately wanted more, more and more. So the next occasion I am not going to make the same mistake. I am going to multiply the amount .
