Tarta de Santiago


Spanish people came up with a precious idea – to replace flour with almonds. So even the simplest cakes (like this one) are scrumptious.

Time of preparation: 30 minutes Difficulty: Easy
  • Eggs_____________4 big
  • Grinded Almond___200 grams
  • Sugar____________200 grams
  • Zest of a lemon
  • Cinnamon________1/2 teaspoon
  • Rom or cognac____1-2 tablespoons

1.     Slightly beat eggs with sugar (you can even just mix). The cake despite eggs shouldn’t rise – it should be flat and even. Add rom or brandy.
2.     Combine almonds with cinnamon and zest, mix, add to the previous mixture.
3.     Grease a baking shape (26cm); pour the dough in. Bake on 180C (360F) for 25-30 minutes. The ready cake must be a little bit dry. Cower with icing sugar; serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
