#food steller #stelleritalia
May is the month of strawberries and here is a super recipe. A tasty cake with strawberries and almonds. A special cake because it allowed me to use almonds in 3 different consistencies: chunks, strips and flour. A cake that conquers everyone, even your mother-in-law! A dessert that during my research draws a lot of French cuisine because it uses frangipane which is typical of this cuisine and of classic pastry. A dessert that recalls very classic flavors in a modern key.
Its beauty is the arrangement of the strawberries that you will have to have the patience to cut them all in half lengthwise. You will also have to have the patience to arrange them one by one forming a more voluminous part in the center. Have fun if you decide to make it, you'll see you make a great figure.
