FFwD - Ispahan Loaf Cake

This week, our French Fridays with Dorie project was the Ispahan Loaf Cake that was longed for by many.  This cake, inspired by a Pierre Herme creation, is a rose flavoured almond flour cake with a secret stash of raspberries hidden in the cake batter. It is a lovely moist cake, and the rose flavour is not at all overwhelming.

I found this cake easy enough to make, although for some reason it stuck to the base of the tin - I just stuck the torn part back on and disguised it with a simple glace icing.

This cake was really good, although it did not elicit any enquiries for the recipe.

To see what the other Dorie bakers thought of this cake, visit the LYL section of the FFwD website.
