LEMON CAKE WITH LEMON FILLING     [print]  |  [comments]

Ingredients
CAKE:
8 eggs, separated
1/2 pound almond flour
1 large lemon (juice)
3/4 cup honey
FILLING:
4 eggs, well-beaten eggs
3/4 cup honey
1 large lemon (juice)
1 teaspoon olive oil (I omitted this, but was OK)
1 cup water (possibly too much, as the filling came out thickened but still rather runny - try cutting the water down to 3/4 or even 1/2 cup)

Instructions
1. CAKE: Beat egg yolks until thick. Add almond flour, lemon juice, and honey (3/4 cup), and beat well.

2. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Gently fold egg-yolk mixture into egg whites until just combined.

3. Pour into two ungreased 9-in round layer pans and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes.

4. FILLING: Beat eggs well. Add the honey, lemon juice, oil (optional) and water.

5. If you have a thick-bottomed saucepan and are good with a whisk, don't bother messing around with a double boiler, just heat up the mixture and keep whisking to keep it from curdling, until it thickens.

6. Chill filling before spreading between layers of cake and over the top and sides. Garnish top with a twisted lemon slice (slivered almonds and a mint sprig would be pretty, too).
