Energising Almond Tarta Di Santiago Recipe

This fantastic almond cake comes from Santiago di Compostella, the capital of Spain, Galicia. It is named after the patron saint of Spain, St. James and is traditionally made with just almonds, sugar and eggs. Sometimes it has a sweet pastry case, but my version is without pastry. It is not only more virtuous as it contains absolutely no butter, but it is moist and light, gluten-free and a great natural energy food.
