Directions:
Preheat oven to 325F.

Combine milk and lemon juice in a bowl; let stand until thickened, about 5 minutes. Pulse almonds, cane sugar, and zest in a food processor until finely ground. Transfer mixture to a large bowl; stir in cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk oil, eggs, and extract into milk mixture; stir into cornmeal mixture.

Brush a 9 inch springform pan with oil. Pour batter into pan. Bake, rotating once, until golden and a tester inserted in center comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.

*If you use gluten free cornmeal, this is an excellent gluten free dessert to serve.

**I use lemon balsamic olive oil which gives this cake an even better flavor.
