Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon rum

Directions

1

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2

With an electric whisk or a stand mixer whisk the butter, sugar, maple syrup, almonds, hazelnuts, flour and rum until homogeneous. Add the whole eggs one by one.

3

Toast the pecans 4 to 5 minutes in a dry pan. Let cool and roughly chop them.

4

Roll out one sheet of pastry and place the almond cream in the center leaving a ½ inch edge. Wet the border with water and place the second sheet of pastry on top. Press the circumference of the cake with your fingers.

5

Mix the remaining egg yolk with a little bit of water and brush the top of the cake. With the back of a knife decorate the cake. Pierce 5 holes (one in the middle and four at each corner) to let the steam escape.

Cook 20 minutes.
