Make a Swedish Visiting Cake. Here's a recipe adapted from Dorie Greenspan's recipe,

It's very easy and incredibly delicious.

Not sure it is what you are looking for, but for a simple almond cake I like Nigella's easy almond cake: https://www.nigella.com...
It's great with fruit.

Pierre Herme has a great version (which I've made many times) of pain d'epice, which is a French fruit nut spice cake. It calls for almonds and walnuts (total 1c), but you could use all almonds if that's your preference.

I really love this citrus-almond-olive oil cake. It has whole puréed citrus fruits in it, which give it a really complex flavor along with the toasted ground almonds and olive oil: http://orangette.net/2010...

For baking, you should try leaf lard. leaf lard is very white and the least pig-smell compared to lard from other pig's parts. The lard came from the kidney or internal organs. Try Farmers Market or butcher for the rendered or raw leaf lard.

You could try a Swiss carrot cake (it's made with a lot of grounded almonds) with cinnamon and nutmeg. I found this recipe in english, despite the missing cinnamon and nutmeg, it's about the same recipe I use http://backtobasics-marilyne...

You could do a zucchini-lime-pistachio cake that would work well with Indian food.
