This week on our culinary adventure we head to France for a scrumptious almond cake recipe. We all know that nobody does cakes like the French and this one is truly delicious. Both kids and adults alike will have fun making and eating this one! Don’t forget to add a dash of cream and some berries to top it off!
France is one of the larger countries in Europe and is surrounded by Belgium, Luxemburg, Germany, Switzerland,
Italy, Monaco, Andorra, and Spain. It also faces the Atlantic Ocean on its west side. In addition to the mainland, the little island of Corsica (just off the coast of Italy) belongs to France too. The proximity to all of these different countries and culinary influences makes French food incredibly diverse.
