Russell Norman's beautifully simple almond cake recipe is inspired by the sweet treats found in his favourite Venetian bakery: "My favourite cake shop is Rizzardini near Campo San Polo, run by Paolo and his daughter Marta. The pastries are super, but I tend to go for the little cakes. They have an almond slice I particularly like. Here’s my rather more homely version, perfect with a milky coffee as a morning treat."
This recipe was taken from Venice by Russell Norman, published by Fig Tree.
