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.
