Pastel de Santiago

Sharing a cake with pilgrims on their way to Santiago has to be one of the most enjoyable experiences in Northern Spain. Here's Rocio's recipe for Santiago Cake called Pastel de Santiago.

Pastel de Santiago

 What you need

250g caster sugar

250g ground almonds

1tps cinnamon

5 eggs

How to bake

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Mark 4. Mix the sugar with the ground almonds and cinnamon. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating them into the mixture. Pour the mixture into a greased and lined 23cm/9 inch flan dish or cake tin. Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before turning out onto a cooling rack. Place a Santiago cross or cut-out (see photo) in the centre to act as a stencil. Then sprinkle with sieved icing sugar and remove the stencil to leave an outline.
