Best almond cake recipe - Whole Foods?

jen223 | Feb 7, 201212:20 PM     13

I'm searching for the best almond cake recipe. I really like the Whole Foods almond crunch cake, and this cake reminds me of an amaretto cake I had all the time in college (culprit of my freshman 15? I think so) from our student center grocery store. Which made me think... why have I been in love with this kind of cake for a decade and not done anything to replicate it???

So I'm looking for your best almond cake recipes! My college cake and the Whole Foods version have two layers of cake with a middle filling of some almond praline goodness, topped with delish icing. I'd love to make something very similar. But given that I probably just love almond/amaretto cakes in general, I'd appreciate any wonderful almond cake recipes, and I might just tweak them to to incorporate elements of crunch and icing. And maybe make them into cupcakes.

Thanks in advance!
