Recipe#35: almond, white chocolate and lemon cake

caprese limone

“Food is the most primitive form of comfort.” (Sheila Graham)


200 gr pealed almonds

200 gr white chocolate

100 gr butter

70 gr flour

5 eggs

150 gr sugar

zest of 3 lemons

juice of 1 lemon

1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp baking powder


Preheat the oven to 180°C  (360°F) and line a 22 cm (9 inch) baking pan with parchment paper.

Melt the white chocolate with the butter and set aside. Grind the almonds with the sugar and set aside.

In a bowl whisk together the eggs, the vanilla, the lemon zest and juice. Gradually add all the other ingredients: the butter and chocolate mixture, the ground almonds with sugar, the flour and the baking powder.

Pour the batter in the pan and bake for around 45 minutes. However, if the top of the cake starts to brown, cover it with foil.

Keep in mind that if you prepare the cake a day beforehand, it is even more tasty!
