Limoncello Almond Cake

250 g blanched almonds or 250 g ground almonds
5 eggs
190 g castor sugar
100 g butter, softened
40 g potato flour (gluten free) or flour
75 ml limoncello
grated zest of 1 lemon
pinch of salt
6 g baking powder
icing sugar to decorate (optional)

Preheat the oven to 160° C.

If using whole blanched almonds, grind them finely in a food processor, otherwise add the already ground almonds to the bowl. Add the eggs to the food processor and blend for 2 minutes until the eggs are well mixed with the almonds.

Add the remaining ingredients, except for the baking powder and blend to a smooth batter. Add the baking powder and blend briefly until just mixed.

Dampen a piece of baking paper with water from a tap. Squeeze out the excess and use to line a 26 cm round  cake tin.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes.

Allow the cake to cool and decorate with icing sugar and flaked almonds.
