2 2/3 cups
butter, room temperature
eggs, room temperature
1 1/3 cups
lemons, juiced and zested
I made my own almond meal using raw almonds and coarse polenta instead of fine cornmeal, but otherwise followed the cake recipe exactly, and baked it in a 10" springform pan. The result was a deliciously rich, gluten-free cake with a heavy crumb. A few sprigs of rosemary tossed into the lemon syrup as it simmered (and then strained out) added a little extra dimension. I'll definitely make this again soon, but with just a tad less butter (some melted through the springform). The cake could easily serve 12 and would be fabulous paired with some ricotta and berries, or perhaps Greek yogurt and apricots.
