Tarta de Santiago (almond cake)


Beat the eggs with the sugar until foamy. Add the butter and continue to beat well. Add the finely-ground almonds and the lemon rind. Pour into a flat, greased pan and bake at a high temperature. When golden, remove from the oven and leave to cool. Place a template in the shape of the Santiago cross on top and sprinkle the cake with icing sugar. Lift the template, leaving behind the imprint in the sugar.
