Mallorcan Almond Cake Recipe - Gató de Almendras MallorquinAlmonds are very popular in Spain - and are used in tapas, sauces, and desserts. This almond cake originates in Mallorca, one of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea. It is easy to prepare in a little less than one hour - Beat eggs, ground almonds, lemon peel, and sugar - all ingredients you probably have in the kitchen. Grind the almonds, grate the lemon peel and beat together with the yolks and mix in the whites. Bake, then dust with powdered sugar. Serve with almond ice cream, for a traditional touch.

Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
Thanks a lot!
