Almond cake for Valentine’s Day
to dust the cake
Grease the heart cake pan and spread it with bread crumbs to assure that your baked heart will release from the pan perfectly.
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius (320 degrees Fahrenheit) upper and lower heat.
Put the butter into a saucepan and melt it at low heat. When the butter is melted set it aside to cool down.
Put the spelt flour and the baking powder into a bowl.
Mix the spelt flour with the baking powder.
Add the eggs, the sugar, the almonds, the lemon zest, and the melted butter.
Stir well using an electric mixer until the dough is smooth.
Pour the dough into the prepared heart cake pan, place it on the middle rack in the preheated oven and bake the heart for an hour.
Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool, before dusting the almond heart with powdered sugar.
Happy Valentine’s Day
