Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9-inch round cake pan (or springform pan) and line the bottom with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, almond meal, baking powder and salt.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in eggs one at a time, waiting until each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Beat in lemon zest.

Mix in 1/3 of the flour mixture, followed by half of the lemon juice.
Add another 1/3 of the flour mixture, then the rest of the lemon juice and the rest of the flour. Stir only until no streaks of flour remain and batter is uniform. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool pan in cake for 15 minutes.

While the cake cools, whisk all glaze ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Pour over cake, then let cake cool completely in pan.
