Preparation of homemade Santiago cake.

In a moment we will prepare a delicious homemade Santiago cake that the whole family will love.

  1. The first thing is to turn the oven to 170º C so that it preheats.
  2. We separate the yolks from the whites, and the latter are left in a container. We pour the sugar with the whites and beat them well, until they reach the well-known point of snow. Then we add the almond, the cinnamon and we grate the lemon skin. Beat everything gently with great care that it does not go down.
  3. We grease the mold that we are going to use for the cake with butter or olive oil, or we can put baking paper on it, and pour the mixture that we have prepared, distributing it well.
  4. We put in the oven for about 50 minutes so that it is done. Check from time to time how it is doing inside by poking it with a knife.
  5. When it is ready, all you need is the decoration, for this put a piece of paper in the center that simulates the Santiago de Compostela cross, sprinkle as much icing sugar as you want, and remove the paper.
