Ingredients for 6 people:

  • 200 grams (4-5) egg whites
  • 135 grams (2/3 cup) of sugar – I prefer to use only 75 grams (1/3 cup)
  • 150 grams peeled almonds
  • zest of 1 organic lemon 



  • Separate egg whites from yolks. Whip egg whites with a pinch of salt until it becomes frothy
  • Put sugar, almond and lemon zest in food processor until this mixture is finely blended 
  • Then fold very gently the whipped egg whites into the mixture, trying to keep it fluffy and soft
  • Pour the batter in a ~10-inch pan 
  • Bake for about ~35 minutes at 360 F.


Let it cool, then slice, and buon appetito.
