Line baking tray with baking paper (30 x 25 cm size). Mix the wheat flour with the cornstarch, the baking powder and the almond flour. Mix the butter with the sugar, the flavours and the salt in a food processor until it’s creamy. Add the eggs and then add the flour mixture.
Put the halved Venosta Valley apricots on the cake and garnish with some cinnamon sugar and flaked almonds. Afterwards bake in the oven (circulatin air 55 minutes 160°C) and test them with chopsticks.

I personally like the cake the next day more.
