Majorca Almond Cake

Last weekend I was invited to a friend's house for cake and coffee and she had made an amazing cake that had no flour or butter in it but it did have a crapload of sugar, but it's still gluten free so whatever.

- 6 Eggs
- Grated lemon peel from an organic lemon
- 200gr. ground almonds
- 250gr. powdered sugar
- 1 vanilla bean scraped
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ground almonds for the cake form

Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites till stiff in a separate container
mix sugar with vanilla, cinnamon, lemon peel, nuts and beat it till creamy
carefully add the egg whites and pour in to cake pan
bake at 350F/175C for 45 minutes make sure to cover it the first twenty minutes so it doesn't get too dark.
Dust with powdered sugar before serving

PS: The cake will be flat so don't worry; if its flat you are doing everything right.
