Italian Almond Cake (Gluten-Free)

2-½ cups whole blanched almonds (or 13 oz. almond meal) 1-½ cups sugar
7 eggs
pinch salt
grated rind of one lemon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
confectioners sugar to dust cake

If using whole almonds, grind into a fine paste in a food processor. Add sugar and process to blend. Place 3 whole eggs and 4 egg yolks in a large bowl, reserving whites. Beat with an electric mixer while slowly adding the almond paste. Mix

until fluffy. Add salt, lemon rind and vanilla. Whip the egg whites until stiff but not dry and fold into the mixture. Butter a 9 or 10 inch springform pan, and line with well-buttered parchment (or wax) paper. Pour the batter into the pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes, or until toothpick comes out dry when inserted in the center of the cake. Cool. Turn the cake out of pan upside down into a serving dish, and carefully remove parchment. Dust with the confectioners sugar.

This is a GREAT recipe - works every time and reminds me of the ones I had as a child.
