Last May my husband and I went to Italy. It was a magical two weeks spent sightseeing the most beautiful cities, touring countryside and taking fabulous cooking classes. I was in heaven.

Before baking, the batter is topped with almond slices so the cake has a crispy, nutty top.

You can serve as is, or top the cake with assorted berries, peaches, grapes, whatever is in season!
