Honey and Almond cake- the cheat version

A quickly assembled cake for guests that was a hit.

I am really NOT a baker, and nor am I a person who is usually distracted by the dessert part of any menu. So while I spend hours planning dinner recipes,I usually only serve fruit for pudding.

However today I fancied something a bit different, so put together a very simple cheat’s version of almond and honey cake.

Shop-bought madeira cake.

Shop-bought honey and flaked almonds.

I heated the honey and almonds very very gently on the stove. I thenskewered holes into the madeira cake and poured the warm honey syrup over the cake and left it to cool.

Served with icecream, it was an easy finish to a meal and perfect served with an espresso.
