  2. Pour sugar into a medium bowl and add lemon zest. Use your fingers to rub the zest into the sugar, until the sugar is moist and fragrant.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking to combine.
  4. Add the salt and extracts and whisk to combine.
  5. Stir in the flour using a rubber spatula.
  6. Fold in the melted butter.
  7. Pour batter into your prepared pan and smooth top with rubber spatula. Sprinkle almonds over the top of the batter and finish with a sprinkle of sugar.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the edges are golden brown and starting to pull away from the edge of the pan.
