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.
200g blanched almonds (not salty)
1 organic-lemon (only peel!)
1 organic orange (only peel!)
24-26cm springform pan (9,5-10inch)
optional: add 1tsp cinnamon and 2-3 tbsp Brandy
Chopp the almonds in a food-prozessor
Seperate egg yolk and egg white. Put egg white in a Kitchen aid or Kenwood etc.
Whipp the egg white until firm
Mix egg yolk with sugar and combine until sugar is dissolved
Then add chopped almonds with lemonpeel + orange peel, in addition add carefully firm egg white and combine
Add everything to a buttered springform pan and put in the oven for 45-50min by 170C / 340F
Remove from the oven and let it cool down. In addition remove part of the springform.
Finally add icing sugar on top. Optional serve with ice-cream. ENJOY
