12 portions
  • 50 grams almond
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 7 eggs
  • 1/4 cups orange juice
  • 1/4 cups oil
  • 5 drops almond extract
  • 255 grams butter, for the filling
  • 2 egg yolks, (for the filling)
  • 50 grams almond, Toast, peeled, toasted and ground (for filling)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, for the filling
  • 3 drops almond essence, for the filling
  • 1 glass Rum, for the filling
  • almonds, in slices to decorate
  • ground bread, (for greased mold)


Preheat the oven to 180 centigrade.
Grease a round and removable mold and sprinkle with ground bread.
Beat the egg whites to the point of nougat, and add the sugar little by little while continuing to beat.
In a bowl, put the egg yolks along with the orange juice and the oil. Mix well.
Combine the mixture of the egg whites with the mixture of the yolks with a rubber spatula and enveloping movements, to avoid loosening the mixture.
Add the sifted flour, the ground almonds, and the almond extract to the mixture of egg whites. Again carefully mix with enveloping movements.
Pour the mixture over the round mold, previously greased and cook for 30-35 minutes.
To make the filling, beat the butter until it is fluffy and add the sugar, the yolks and the almond extract. Beat well and add the rum and toasted almonds, peeled, and ground.
Meanwhile, soak the almonds to decorate (about 30 almonds) in boiling water, and peel them. Cut them in half lengthwise and put them to toast on a baking sheet.
Once they are toasted, decorate the cake by sticking the almonds on one end of the cake so they stand.


You can also buy almonds in slices to decorate the cake.

Tenía guardada la receta desde hace tiempo y hoy que la saqué para hacerla me doy cuenta que está confusa e incompleta, en parte son las mismas dudas que se manifiestan en los comentarios publicados y no veo respuestas, tiene alguna cobertura o las almendras se insertan en el pan como dice en las instrucciones de preparación.
