What You'll Need

Eggs Granulated Sugar Almond Flour Ground Cinnamon Lemon Zest Powdered Sugar

Start by preheating the oven to 350°F and lining a round cake pan with parchment paper. Then crack the eggs and weigh them (optional but recommended).

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with an electric hand or stand mixer for about 5-7 minutes until they are pale and fluffy.

When the eggs are pale, set the mixer aside. Add the almond flour, cinnamon, and lemon zest and mix them in using a whisk.

Pour the batter into the pan lined with parchment paper and spread it out evenly with a spatula.

Bake the cake at 350°F for 30 to 35 minutes or until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let the cake cool, then remove it from the pan and place a paper stencil of Santiago’s cross on top and dust with powdered sugar. Then serve and enjoy!
