Tonka Beans

I don't have access to tonka beans, but still wanted to try Tartelette's Tonka Bean White Chocolate & Apricot Cake. This cake is dense & rich, if you ask me, they taste like pound cake. Instead of tonka beans, I used pure vanilla extract & pure almond extract. I didn't get the chance to add slivered almonds, but I'm sure that would have been a nice crunchy addition. Apricots don't have a lot of strong flavor to me, so I couldn't say they're the star of this cake.
