Tarta de Santiago, or “St. James’ Cake,” is a traditional Spanish almond cake with roots dating back to the Middle Ages.
Since Medieval times, millions of pilgrims have made their way to the small town of Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. At the end of their journey, a special almond cake bearing the cross of Santiago or “St. James” awaits them. Fortunately, you don’t need to complete the nearly 500-mile pilgrimage to enjoy this simple yet delicious almond cake at home.
St. James cake is the perfect dessert for spring. But don’t just take our word for it – give the recipe a try and tell us what you think!
