Almond Cake

 

  • 1/2 lb. (1-3/4 cups) blanched whole almonds
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 1-1/4 cups superfine sugar
  • Grated zest of 1 orange
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 drops almond extract
  • Confectioners' sugar for dusting
 

Finely grind the almonds in a food processor.

With an electric mixer, beat the egg yolks with the sugar to a smooth pale cream. Beat in the zests and almond extract. Add the ground almonds and mix very well.

With clean beaters, beat the egg whites in a large bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold them into the egg and almond mixture (the mixture is thick, so you will need to turn it over quite a bit into the egg whites).

Grease an 11-inch springform pan, preferably nonstick, with butter and dust it with flour. Pour in the cake batter, and bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 40 minutes, or until it feels firm to the touch. Let cool before turning out.

 

Just before serving, dust the top of the cake with confectioners' sugar. 

 

 

I spread raspberry jam over the top before dusting with confectioners sugar. Everyone loves this cake so I make it just about every year.

Re: PASSOVER RECIPES

I hope you won't mine me bumping in but I would love a matzo ball soup recipe.  I absolutely love this soup.  I have purchased the box soup but it's not the same.  Happy Passover to you.  Cat Very Happy

@Shanus  to me the desserts are the fun part (what else is new!).   this cake is very good -  it looks harder with all the grinding and the beating  than it really is.

Re: PASSOVER RECIPES

You're not bumping in @KatCat1, but sorry to disappoint you. I use the box mix and have for many years. I substitute club soda for the water and it makes them lighter & fluffier!!! Keep the lid on the pot when boiling or they'll float up the ceiling. 😂

@KatCat1. Oh. Forgot to add that I make my own standard, any recipe, chicken soup....not what comes in the box. You can purchase matzo ball mix in a box w/o soup packette.

Re: PASSOVER RECIPES

@Shanus,  Thank you, Shanus.  Hopefully, I can find in the store or check out our one and only Jewish deli.  i like your trip about the soda.  Matzo balls are better when lighter. IMO  Cat Very Happy

Re: PASSOVER RECIPES

@KatCat1. Most chain food stores have a "kosher aisle" & you can find matzo ball mix there all year. At Passover, the mixes and other foods are special for Passover & say so on the box. They have no leavening agents in them.
