  • Summary

    This recipe makes enough batter for a three-layer cake; to make the towering six-layer cake pictured, make two separate batches, rather than simply doubling the ingredients. The frosting recipe makes an ample amount for either three or six layers. If desired, granish with sugared lemon zest.

    Ingredients

    • Unsalted butter, for pans
    • 2 cups (8 ounces) almond flour
    • 3 tablespoons bread flour
    • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 2 tablespoons golden raisins
    • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
    • 2 tablespoons candied orange peel
    • 2 tablespoons candied lemon peel
    • 1/3 cup dark-chocolate-covered almonds
    • 1 tablespoon brandy
    • 10 large egg whites, room temperature
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
