How to make it

  • Put the lemons into a saucepan and cover with water, bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 1 hour.
  • Remove the lemons from the water, cut in half and scrape the seeds out. Put the lemons into a blender, skins and all, to create a puree.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees.
  • Beat the eggs and sugar until pale and thick.
  • Fold in the flour, baking powder, almonds and lemon puree.
  • Pour into a greased 20cm spring tin and bake in a pre-heated oven at 170 degrees for 1 hour.
  • Cool on a cooling rack until ready to eat.
  • Cut into 16 portions and serve with yogurt mixed with a few chopped mint leaves. (optional)

    Because the recipe is in grams I'm gonna guess that the 170 degree oven is in Centigrade instead of Fahrenheit, right?
