This is a quick and easy cake that has been quite popular in Sweden years ago.


3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups flour
5 Tbsp butter
20 sliced almonds
ground peel of 1 lemon

Melt butter and let it cool. Beat eggs and sugar- the less you beat the better. Add fruit peel. Sift flour and baking powder into the mixture and add butter. Stir only until ingredients are just mixed. Pour into a greased pan that holds about 1 1/2 quarts and sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 350-400 degrees for 30-40 minutes- until cake tester comes out clean from the center.
