When it comes to making delicious desserts, we have the recipes that great chefs look for. Whether it's cookies, pies, or Italian spice nut cake, for example. We've got it all. Follow the following recipe for a delicious Italian spice nut cake that guests will love.


  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cups blanched toasted sliced almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup finely diced candied fruits
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. Combine the sugar, honey and water in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Remove from the heat and beat in the flour mixture until very smooth. Mix in the almonds and fruit. Turn into a well-oiled 9-inch pie plate. If you like, decorate the top with almonds and fruit. Bake in a preheated 300° F oven for 45 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool thoroughly before turning out. Serve in very narrow strips.
