This cake is just perfect for summer. As it needs to rest for at least eight hours once baked (to set and achieve the perfect consistency), it's a great one to make the night before when the temperatures are a little cooler. You can then enjoy it the next day. It's a soft cake that remains moist. The rich almonds go well with the freshness of the lemon and the seasonal fruit. Thanks to the beaten egg whites, this cake continues to rise during baking. Once baked, however, it sets again and becomes heavier because of all the moisture. It is delicious served chilled as a dessert or as a tasty summer snack.
