About

Maple is one of my favorite flavors and combined with almonds I've always thought makes an interesting taste pairing, especially for Autumn.

If you can't find Almond Milk, you can substitute regular milk and a little almond extract or flavoring. You can also halve the Almond Milk and combine with heavy cream for a denser and more moist cake if you wish.
