How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 325°. Lightly coat a 9-inch springform cake pan with baking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper.

Step 2    

In a medium bowl, whisk the almond flour with the baking powder and salt. Set aside one-third of the berries in a small bowl for garnish.

Step 3    

In a large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the eggs with the granulated sugar and rosewater, if using, at medium-high speed until very thick and glossy, about 12 minutes. Fold in the almond flour and the remaining berries in
3 alternating batches, ending with the almond flour, just until blended. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the surface.

Step 4    

Bake the cake for about 55 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer to a rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Unmold the cake and let cool completely.

Step 5    

Top the cake with the reserved berries and dust
with confectioners’ sugar. Serve with crème fraîche.
