Almond Lemon Cake

If you like the combination almond + lemon, you'll love this cake. Delicious at tea time or even for breakfast. Its texture is very soft and spongy. Very close to the angel cake's. I've made this cake twice. The first try was disappointing because I used a baking pan that was too wide (9''). For the second try, I've used a 6''. Much better.

2. Separate the whites from the yolks. 
3. Beat the yolks with the sugar until frothy. 
4. Add the almond butter and the lemon juice, beating vigorously. Then add the flour, the baking powder, the almond meal, and the lemon zest.
