Tarta de Santiago

Tarta de Santiago (St. James cake)

A "Tarta de Santiago" (or St James cake) is a delicious regional cake original from Galicia, in the north-west of Spain. This medieval almond cake has a characteristic moist texture, obtained by using ground almonds instead of flour, which also makes it gluten free. The distinctive touch of citrus and cinnamon combines perfectly with the nuttiness of the almonds. It is what we call a very effective and simple recipe, as it uses only 5 ingredients, takes no more than 30 minutes to make and the result is guaranteed to impress all of those who try it. The top of the cake is traditionally decorated with the "Cruz de Santiago" (Cross of Saint James) and icing sugar.
