Ground almonds are incorporated into this sweet cake, lending earthy nuttiness. Fresh-squeezed lemon juice and lemon zest temper the sweetness of white chocolate and limoncello in the ultra-citrusy dessert. Use a springform pan if at all possible, as it will yield the best results. Once the cake is baked and cooled completely, a light shower of powdered sugar is all it requires.

Ingredients

  • 250 grams white chocolate
  • 200 grams butter
  • 200 grams almonds
  • 150 grams sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup limoncello

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 170C.
  2. Melt the chocolate with the butter.
  3. Beat the eggs with half of the sugar until light and foamy.
  4. Grind the almonds finely with the other half of the sugar.
  5. In a bowl, combine the almond and sugar mixture with the grated lemon peel, lemon juice, limoncello liqueur, and the chocolate melted with the butter, and mix all these ingredients well.
  6. Last, add the egg and sugar mixture by folding it in very carefully.
  7. Pour the batter in a 22 centimeter cake pan, a springform pan is best, which has been previously buttered and floured.
  8. Bake the cake for approximately 45 minutes.
  9. If after 30 minutes the surface is browning too much, cover it with a sheet of aluminum foil.
  10. Cool the cake completely, remove it from the pan and serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.

After preparing dozens of caprese cakes in my life; nothing compared to this appetizing recipe. The cake was a slightly solid and the white chocolate gave it a rich taste. I put in some dark chocolate to get that little bit of bitterness. I can already picture myself making this 4 star caprese cake for an everyday flavorful treat.
