glad to hear you can buy almond flour at Trader Joe's (love that place). I'm going to Folsom, CA in May and will have to pick some up. We don't have Trader Joes here in Canada.
Thanks for posting the receipes, they sound so yummy.

i'm going to try the chocolate cake tonight.

my basic chocolate cake is "fudge brownie" by scott wooley and if my customer wants a *really* dense, fudgey cake then i used toba garret's recipe. does anyone know the texture of the choc. cake recipe txkat posted? i'm looking for something that is not as dense as toba's.

and thanks txkat for posting the recipes...the vanilla cognac sounds wonderful.

txkat,
i would love to try making the white chocolate cake but couldn't find the almond flour yesterday. i wonder if i could just used cake flour instead? would it make a huge difference in the end results? sounds so good : )

Yes there is a huge difference... almond flour is basically almond meal or really really finely crushed almonds. So the structure of the cake would not be the same.
You should be able to find almond flour in your "heathly or organic area " in the grocery store (whatever they call it these days).
I buy mine from different stores it's the Bob Red Mills brand. Just call your local grocers before going out there, they should be able to tell you if they carry it, instead of running about everywhere.

Good Luck.

Theoretically you could use cake flour, but because of the gluten in wheat flour that is not present in nut flour, the cake will be tougher and not quite as perfectly tender as the original recipe. I would say go ahead and give it a shot, but be especially careful not to overmix, since that is what activates the gluten.
