FYRSTEKAKE (PRINCE'S CAKE)

Cake:
250 g (8 ounces, 1 cup) unsalted butter
1 1/2 dl (2/3 cup) sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
6 dl (2 2/3 cups) flour

Filling:
3 1/2 dl (1 1/3 cups) ground almonds
3 dl (1 1/4 cups) confectioner's sugar
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
2 tablespoons water

   
 

Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F).

In a food processor, combine butter, sugar, egg, egg yolk and flour until the dough forms a ball. Do not overwork. Press 2/3 of the dough into the bottom and up the sides of a 22 cm (9") springform.

Combine ingredients for the filling and pour into the crust.

Roll out remaining dough to a thickness of 3 mm (1/8"). Cut into 12 mm (2 1/2") strips. Lay the strips in a lattice pattern over the filling. Place a strip of dough around the edge of the cake.

Bake about 50 minutes.
