Tosca cake is a traditional Finnish cake covered with a really delicious layer of caramelized almonds. My recipe is a little bit different and there is no need to use an electric mixer. Just mix all the ingredients in a bowl and pour into the cake pan. The texture of the cake is still soft and moist. I also made the almond caramel a little bit easier and there’s only three ingredients needed. I hope you’ll enjoy this cake at your coffee table!
