Almond cake. Peel the almonds, crush it in a copper mortar, while crushing pour some rose water and egg yolks, add sugar as well. You can make doughnuts from this, too. Put the crushed almonds onto a clean knife. Put butter on the knife first so that the almonds won't get stuck, warm some butter in a pan, then fry it in butter; once you're about to serve it, add sugar. You can stuff doughnuts with this as well.
