Almond Cake with Apricot Brandy Sauce

The cake owes its moist, spongy texture to the same thing that gives the sauce its luscious consistency: Kerrygold Irish Butter made with grass-fed cow’s milk. The soft, creamy butter does double duty in this dessert, and the result is a dish that’s twice as hard to forget.
