  6. Add ground almonds.
  7. Mix baking powder with flour and add to dough. Mix thoroughly.
  8. Butter a cake pan or cupcake tin and transfer dough to it.
  9. Bake at 180°C for about 45 minutes (cake) or 20 minutes (cupcakes).
  10. Let cupcakes cool for 10 minutes.
  11. Mix lemon juice and icing sugar until a thick paste forms. Glaze cooled cupcakes as you like.
