Ingredients

Number of serving: 4

Cake ingredients:

1 cup ground almonds,

1/2 cup sugar,

2 eggs,

6 tablespoons (room temperature) butter,

1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon sugar for the baking pan.


Vanilla Sauce:

1 cup sweet condensed milk,

1 tablespoon rum,

1 tablespoon vanilla extract,


Home made--the more ambitious version:

1 egg yolk,

2 tablespoons sugar,

1 cups milk,

1 tsp corn starch,

Vanilla pod or vanilla essence,

1 tablespoon rum.

Preparation

  • Cake :
    Preheat oven to 325F(180 C.) Spread butter over the baking dish and dust with sugar. Using a mixer whip the butter with sugar until smooth. Add eggs and, when they blend, add almonds. Mix well and transfer to the baking tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Let the cake cool down before you transfer it on a serving plate, pour the vanilla sauce over it, decorate with fresh fruits of your choice and serve.
  • Vanilla Sauce:
    Mix all the ingredients and pour sauce over the cake, following with fruits.
  • Home made--the more ambitious version:
    In a bowl beat eggs with sugar, add corn starch, and mix well. If you use a vanilla pod, cut it in half, scoop up the black seeds with a knife and add them to the milk. Boil the milk and pour hot into the yolk mixture. Return to the heat and cook until sauce boils and becomes thicker. Cool down the sauce, add rum, and pour over the cake. Decorate with fruits and serve.
