Thsi cake is traditional of Galicia, Spain. It is made in honor of Santiago de compostela, an apostle.
As i promised I am sharing the recipe! 


175 gr of flour

3 eggs

125 gr of milk

A split of water

125 gr of butter without salt

250gr of pealed almonds

250 gr of sugar

The skin of half a lemon

25 gr of pulverized sugar.

Triturate the almonds with the lemon skin. Until the almonds are in very small pieces.

Whip the eggs with the sugar for 5 minutes at medium- High speed.

Add the milk, the split of water, the butter at room temperature, and the flour. You whip it 2 minutes at the same speed.

Add the almonds and the lemon. Mixing it 1 minute at medium- high speed.

Put the mix in a previously buttered demountable round baking pan. Cook it in a preheated oven 200°C for 25 minutes. Let it cool completely before removing it from the baking pan. It is very fragile.

Last sprinkle the pulverized sugar over the top.

I know that many of you don’t use this measures but I don’t know how to translate them.

The original recipe is for a cooking machine called Thermomix ( my best friend in the kitchen)

It is a little wet because of the oil of the almonds  but believe me is delicious.
