In separate bowl combine the almonds and flour and set aside.
In an Electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add egg YOLKS slowly as mixer runs until combined well.
With mixer running add: ricotta, lemon zest, and lemon juice until combined well.
Now fold in the Almonds and Flour, being sure not to beat or stir, just fold.
In a clean (grease free) bowl beat the egg whites on high until stiff peaks form.
(You can wipe the bowl with vinegar before beating egg whites ( good degreaser)
Fold the stiff egg whites into the Almond cake batter.
Pour into grease cake pan.
