Here is the flourless cake recipe I promised:

Flourless Lemon cake

206gm ground almonds

1 lemon rind finely grated

1/4 – 1/2 tsp cinnamon

5 eggs

220g castor sugar

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Butter and line a 24cm springform tin.

2. With an electric beater and large bowl beat eggs and sugar together until thick and pale (takes about 10 minutes).

3.  Add remaining ingredients and fold through with a metal spoon until just combined.

4. Bake for 40 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.

5 . Remove from over and allow to cool in tin for 10 minutes before removing sides.

6.  Cool and dust with icing sugar

7.  Eat with fun people and tea from a pot!!

This recipe was given to me by a friend so I am not 100% sure where it originated but there are many many variations on the Internet – this recipe is pretty quick and simple.  I buy the ground almonds from a local nut and grain store and they only cost about $3.50 which is much better than at the supermarket – it’s worth shopping around!
