The weatherlast Friday was what anyone could hope the first day of spring to be. Warm,sunny, low humidity and a holiday for some. Here it´s Student´s Day, so, sincethey don´t have school they invade the streets and parks, all giddy withexcitement and freedom, roaming the streets like famished ants. They´re a happysight, at least for a few hours. As the day closes in, you see the mess, emptybottles, trash and cigarrettes everywhere, drunken yells and tired-with-freedomteenagers making their way home. Like spring break that lasts only one day.Thank god for that.
It uses thewhole lemon, sans pits of course, which is processed with some corn syrup andpowdered sugar. Then there´s some cornmeal, semolina flour (don´t roll youreyes, you can use all purpose flour instead) and almonds too.The texture is coarse and extremely moist. It´s the type of low-rise cake tomake in large quantities and serve with cream and strawberries for a crowd. Or I guess a dash of limoncello will be good, just like this other lemon almond cake.
