Yesterday afternoon I pick up the phone. I don’t recognize the voice., but I pretend that I know who is. After a few seconds thinking and my brain started to burn, I finally recognize who is talking on the other side. Is a friend of mine, one of the few that I had here.
She asks me if I will be in home in Saturday afternoon .As today (Saturday) they come to install my split-up for the living room, I will stay all afternoon in my place . Yes, we buy other, because after the experience of last summer in what the heats were awful and the only one that we had was in the bedroom, we decide to buy other. So, I thought in made a cake, to receive her. It was a long time that I not made anything sweet. As I had a few of almond flour, I thought in made it with vanilla and almonds, I was inspired by the recipe of English cake that I found into the Osvaldo Gross’s book, I could make ( my tins are to smaller) two and I found fantastic as to come with a cup of tea or coffee.
220 confectionery’s sugar
1 lemon zest
1 spoon (coffee) vanilla essence
100G egg yolks or 5 units
80G corn starch
150G almonds flour (or peel almonds and put them in the blender)
Mix up the butter with sugar and glucose until to obtain a pale mixture.
Incorporate the lemon zest, the vanilla and the yolks one by one, make it in the same way with the two eggs Beat until obtaining a homogeneous concoction. Add the flour, almonds flour, the r baking powder and the corn starch. Mix, but don’t over batten, the concoction should be flat. Put in pudding tins and put pieces of almonds to decorate. Take in medium temperature oven until this gilding. Retire and sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar.
