Decaf Coffee and Almond Cake

This is one cake that I do not have to worry letting my girl eat even though there is an obvious coffee aroma from every slice. 

Well, it's decaffeinated! No worries about not being able to sleep after taking this delectable snack that is full of coffee aroma and nutty almond fragrance!!

I'm using Aromantic Instant Powder Beverage as shown below for the 'decaf coffee'. The ingredients in this beverage is very healthy and nutritious. (I'm not paid for mentioning this instant powder beverage but just sharing what I thought is good stuff. You can always use the normal instant coffee powder if you do not want it to be decaffeinated.) 

I've also added coffee oil to further enhance the coffee aroma. 

 The result - soft, fluffy and flavorful cake!!
