Mass. Bakery Succeeds With Flourless, Butterless Cakes

May 23, 2012: 08:32 PM EST
A Massachusetts bakery founded by immigrants from Spain is grabbing attention these days for an old world cake that contains no butter or flour. The tarta de Santiago is an example of the ubiquitous – in Spain at least – almond cake made with ground almonds, eggs, sugar and citrus rind. The cake is chewy, with a texture resembling tender cake or even macaroons, an decorated with powdered sugar and the Cross of St. James. At the Madrid European Bakery (Marlborough), tartas made with various nut-based recipes sell for $19.95 to $23.95 per cake.
