  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with a fork. Mix in the sugar.
  • In a separate bowl combine together ground almonds, lemon zest and cinnamon. Add this to the mixing bowl and using a wooden spatula stir until well combined.
  • Pour the batter into a 7-inch/18cm springform pan lined with baking parchment and bake for 35 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
  • Let it cool completely before dusting with powdered sugar.


  1. Use 3 small to medium eggs. If you are using large eggs, use only 2.
  2. This recipe can be doubled. If you double the recipe, use a larger springform pan.
  3. Powdered sugar = Icing sugar.
