Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Grease a baking dish; I used a 6 by 6-square tin.
  2. Preheat the oven to 150⁰C.
  3. In the dry grinder, grind the cashew nuts and sugar. Powder the cashew nuts to a fine paste.
  4. Mix with eggs, essence, flour and baking powder.
  5. Transfer the mix to the baking dish.
  6. Bake till the toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes then de-mould.
  8. Cut and serve when cold.
Notes:
  1. I found it too sweet. Next time will try with 85-95 grams of sugar.
  2. The original cake is for 450 grams of cashew nuts. I have reduced it to by four.
  3. The original recipe calls for 7 whole and 5 yolks since I used 3 and did not know what to do with the 1 egg white I added it to the batter.
