    1. Hello Michelle,

      Here is the conversion from grams to ounces on the different ingredients:
      125g = 4.4 oz
      230g = 8.1 oz
      80g = 2.8 oz

      That’s a delicious cake. Enjoy.

    Made this today. Delicious! Had a big bag of Almonds and a few walnuts but not food a processor. So I put The nuts in a large gallon sized plastic bag and beat them up with a meat mallet. Then strained the nuts through the collander to separate the nut flour from the little bits of nut meat just to make sure I had the right amount of nut flour. Then used both the nut meats and nut flour in the recipe so although there were a few walnuts in it it was mostly an almond cake. Again it was delicious! It looked just liked the pictures and went perfectly with an iced coffee. Funny! I had the opportunity to eat someone else’s nut cake tonight (walnut) and thought their’s was nuttier in the short run. However, the sweetness of my nut cake and taste of the nuts crept up onto my palate slower and more pleasantly and much more enjoyably. I will make this again as an almond cake. This will be one of my go to recipes because it was so easy to make and again so enjoyable. Made a Sour Cream Coffee Cake last Saturday and I enjoyed this more.

    I loved this cake. I was not sure if I was going to be able to make it right because I am not a baker. But, is so delicious and easy to make.
    Thank you for the recipe and detailed instructions.
