    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.

  • About Me

    Celiac.com's Founder and CEO, Scott was diagnosed with celiac disease  in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. Scott launched the site that later became Celiac.com in 1995 "To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives."  In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
