A few months ago I showed you a recipe for a delicious lemon cake with icing, but in times of the “corona crisis” flour seems to be waffle goods in many supermarkets.

In order not to miss out a delicious cake this time, I have a recipe for a lemon almond cake without any flour today. Instead of flour this cake is baked with ground almonds (alternatively other ground nuts). Have fun baking 😉
