About this recipe: I ate this cake on my last holiday to Majorca and asked for the recipe straightaway. It is fantastically simple, calling for just six easy to find ingredients. It's a nice recipe when you're looking for something easy but different.


Serves: 12 

  • breadcrumbs for tin
  • 6 eggs
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 400g ground almonds, with skins
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons rum

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Grease a loaf tin or casserole dish (preferably wide, so that the cake is not too tall) and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Beat the eggs in a bowl until fluffy. Stir in the remaining ingredients one by one. Pour mixture into the prepared tin and bake in preheated oven for 40-50 minutes. Do a skewer test - push a skewer into the centre of the cake. When it comes out clean, the cake is ready. The cake should be beautiful and moist.

Make it gluten free

If you use gluten free breadcrumbs, this is a lovely gluten free cake.
