Santiago's cake

The Santiago cake is a traditional recipe of Galician cuisine. Its origin is unknown and it is delicious as an accompaniment to a good tea or coffee.

It is a cake without any flour suitable for celiacs and if you like almonds, this is your cake.

Ingredients

  • 375g ground almonds
  • 200g white sugar
  • 6 eggs L
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 5g ground cinnamon
  • icing sugar to decorate

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 170ºC.
  2. In a bowl, add the sugar together with the ground almonds, the ground cinnamon and the lemon zest. Mix well and add the eggs one at a time while we integrate them with the help of an Efficient spatula .
  3. We wet a sheet of parchment paper under the tap while wrinkling it and place it in a 28 cm low Infinity saucepan .
  4. Pour the dough into the pan, place it in the oven and remove the silicone handles.
  5. We bake for 30 minutes. Once the time has passed, let it cool and place the typical cross of Santiago (download template here ).
  6. Once we have the cross template and the cake has cooled, place the template on the cake and sprinkle with icing sugar using a sieve. We remove the template and we can now enjoy this delicious cake, we recommend cutting the cake with a serrated knife . Much better if we serve it accompanied by a good tea or coffee.
