Almond and lemon syrup cake


This cake is refreshing and very light and lemony. Apart from the taste it looks very pretty on the plate. The blanched almonds look very attractive along with the addition of the syrup.
The syrup makes the cake moist and it also enhances the lemony flavor in the cake.
