Tarta de Santiago (St. James Cake)

Tarta de Santiago

As Saturday 25 July is Día del Apóstol Santiago (St. James' Day) - the Patron Saint of Spain and of the City of Santa Cruz de Tenerife - we bring you the recipe for the traditional Tarta de Santiago (St. James Cake), gluten and dairy free Spanish Almond Cake.


250 grams of ground almonds
250 grams of white sugar
5 medium eggs
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
The zest of half a lemon
Icing sugar


Weigh the ingredients and put the almond, sugar, lemon zest, and cinnamon in a bowl. Mix well. Add the 5 eggs. Mix very well until everything is integrated.

Pour the dough into greased a mold or flan tin (approx 26 cm in diameter) and put it in the oven at 180 degrees for about 50 minutes, until evenly browned.

Once cooked, decorate with the Cross of St. James.

Download a template (PDF) of the Cross of St. James to decorate the tart. Print it off and cut it out. Place it on the cake and sprinkle with icing sugar. Remove the template carefully, so that the mark of the cross is left. (Via)
