what is this sweet bread/cake?

NYchowcook | Jan 2, 2009 06:11 AM

I had a New Year's day open house and people brought all kinds of gifts -- regifted jam, wine that had turned, a plant, eggs, and one person brought this very, very delicious cake.

It's light/white flour kind of like an irish soda bread with almonds (no caraway/fennel). They sliced it, toasted and sprinkled sugar, and reasembled it. It is very delicious. I'm wondering if this is a traditional holiday cake. I don't know who gave it to me so I'm turning to my fellow 'hounds to ask.
