This cake is deliciously moist and has all the flavors of summer. Although it's wonderful straight from the pan, if you can show restraint it's even better a day later, when the lemony almond flavors seems to permeate the cake. There's no need to go overboard like I did and add a dollop of cream, but honestly it was a dream.
