Mandeltorte (Almond Torte) Recipe
Juice & Rind Only
Toasted Bread Crumbs
Lemon Orange Custard Filling
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. All ingredients must be at room temperature (70 degrees F) before starting. Sift the flour. Beat the egg yolks. Gradually add the sugar to the egg yolks. Beat until creamy. Add the lemon rind, lemon juice, cinnamon, ground almonds, bread crumbs and almond extract. Whip the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold the egg whites lightly into the batter. Pour the batter into 2 (8") ungreased layer cake pans. Bake about 20 minutes. Cool.
Carefully(!) remove from the pans. Spread Lemon Orange Custard filling between the layers. Sprinkle sifted confectioner's sugar over the top.
