ALMOND CAKE MALLORCA

#1 Post by Martin Zwick » April 16th, 2019, 12:31 am

This morning I was thinking what to cook for the Easter holidays. In the last years I spend the Easter holidays in Sicily or Mallorca and it reminded me to make a classic almond cake from Mallorca. Perfect with some ice-cream.

Nola,

its the same cake. At Mallorca they don't use the cross of the Santiago order on top, I guess.

As you know the island of Mallorca is famous for the almond trees, so no wonder that they make an almond cake or almond soup etc.

P.S. what I also should point out that this almond cake contains no flour.

Thanks for the recipe, Martin. I just fixed my oven (home repair job from hell) so this sounds like a great inaugural dessert.
