Ann's Amaretti Cake

This cake is more like a brownie, because it is not made with flour, but amaretti cookies and almonds. Melted chocolate is added in to enrich the flavor. I chose to submit this cake because it is my daughter, Ann's, favorite and it is also her birthday on July 5th.

Recipe Notes

After cooled, I often sprinkle powdered sugar on top with some sliced strawberries to add a little something extra.
