toffee cake...


1
Toffee cake was one of my to bake list, but for some reason I never made it. I wasn't in my routine mode yet, so I wanted to make something to get myself back to normal. Toffee cake was the one to start with.

Yesterday, I got back to work and I felt like it was my first day of working here. Everything seemed out of place and my brain didn't seem to work properly. I'll need a few days to feel comfortable though.

Back to the toffee cake, I used Toffee-ettes from See's candies to make this cake. I also add this over the cake for the Easter idea. There are many different types of chocolate candies and Easter Candies available that you can use for baking--check them out!

Ingredients:

- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour

haha! You and I must have been thinking on the same wavelength. We picked the toffee and I also am going to post a almond cakey thing, but not chocolate based. I got the recipe from my FIL, of all people.

Your cake looks great! You would not have to force me to eat it :-)
