easy swedish almond cake

it’s not so much an almond cake, as an easy little crumb/coffee cake, and it’s only swedish cause i got it from a swedish relative and it’s PERFECT for fika (tea time) HERE YOU ARE!!

1 cup of flour
1 cup of sugar 
2 eggs 
1 stick of butter, melted and cooled

whisk the eggs into the sugar, one at a time, fold in the flour then the butter. butter your baking dish and then line with salted breadcrumbs (or flour). put ur mixture into your baking tin (i used a 9in cake tin), scatter the top with roughly chopped/sliced almonds, and scatter some more sugar over the top. bake at 350˚F and bake for 25-30 min!!! 

take out, let cool, and slice it on up and enjoy with tea/coffee/whatever you like!!

Odd plans
Around July 20, Van Gogh explored this new subject: a garden full of flowers. At the same time he began to take into account that Gauguin wouldn’t be able to pay his debt and might not be able to come to Arles after all.
He even played with the idea to leave Arles and join Gauguin in Pont Aven.

If G. can’t pay his debt nor pay for his journey —
If he guarantees me a cheaper life in Brittany —
Why should I not, for my part, go and live with him, if we want to help him?

(letter 645 to his brother Theo, on or about July 22, 1888)
