Amandine, a cake with rum-flavoured cream 300g

What grandma says: The Amandine is the cake of my youth. I do not know if indeed I conquered the Americans with it, as the joke goes, but I’m sure that’s how I conquered my own husband: when I looked up at him after I put on the table in front of him the saucer with an Amandine cake made by me. I’ll confess that, at that time, I did not know how to syrup it properly, but so many critics passed through my kitchen, some of them as small as they were categorical, that I have reached the perfect recipe.
