I can attest to the fact that this recipe rocks! I am constantly requested to make this for church potlucks. It's extremely easy and feeds a large crowd. I have also made this by substituting vanilla extract for the almond, and it's fabulous either way. Just depends on your own personal taste. While the cake is baking, I wash the sauce pan I used to make it, and use it for the frosting, so clean up is easy! :)
