Grammy Greta's Swedish Almond Cake

Grammy Greta's Swedish Almond Cake


When my parents were both working as a young boy, I would spend afternoons at my grandparent's house, oftem referred to by my parents as Phil and Greta's house. Whenever you visited you would always find Greta preparing a meal, smiling. She used real milk, real butter, a whole lot of love and she and Phil both lived long lives well into their nineties. Greta's recipe for almond cake was the standard everyone in our family matter what version we had during the Christmas season we always remembered Greta's kitchen and her smile!
