Marcella’s Butter Almond Cake (Jessica Fechtor)
Jessica Fechtor wrote in her blog, Sweet Amandine, “Like many of the sweet recipes that have become staples in my kitchen, this one was passed on to me from my step-mom, Amy. I have preserved its original title, Marcella's Butter Almond Cake…. After doing some research, seems that "Marcella" is one Marcella Sarne of Long Beach, California, who entered this recipe in a baking contest sponsored by C&H sugar. She won the grand prize, a $40,000 custom kitchen! “
