I have made this cake many times...with excellent results! Wouldn't you must have done something wrong.. Removing it from the soon it fell apart.. Now I know it has to sit , cooling in the pan..10-15 minutes.. I lost track of time.. my mistake It still tastes great. I show you all the's you don't make the same mistake I did!!!.... It has a crusty exterior with the almonds...and tastes really great. Nancy....7/6/12
