    Love this cake. Agree that it had elements of shortbread and scone-like texture and taste. Not a gateau-like cake, if that's what you are looking for. Something quite different and unique. I do admit to adding a tsp of vanilla extract because I thought it was odd that the recipe did not include it. Completely delicious regardless. And it came out looking exactly like the picture - I love it when that happens!!!!

    I love this cake. It tastes like a shortbread cookie cake. I suggest using the best butter you can buy. I also vary the compote with whatever fruit I happen to have on hand.

    Felt it wasn't quite sweet enough. Added tsp of almond flavoring to recipe and dusted with icing sugar.

    I made this today and followed recipe exactly. I found it not buttery taste I was looking forward to. Next time I would decrease the all purpose flour to 1 cup.
