This is a rich dense Italian-style almond pound cake with fine ground almond flour in the batter that is drenched in a tart lemon syrup right out of the oven. It's the perfect Summer cake. For bakeries, it stays moist for up to 7 days even without the berries on top, so it is ideal during the slower time of the year. This cake is not only an ideal canvas for fresh strawberries, but any fresh fruit. Take a tropical spin on it and top it with grilled pineapple and toasted coconut. Try it with fresh mango and kiwi. Fresh nectarines and a flourish of blackberry compote would sing from your dessert plates atop this masterpiece. You'll find it to be one of your most popular desserts this season. Enjoy!
