Light, moist and extremely moreish this almond cake is great served with a spoonful of clotted cream for a real afternoon treat.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan / gas mark 4). Grease and line the base of a 15cm round cake tin.

  2. Beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add the egg yolks one at a time and stir in with the almond extract. Beat well.

  3. Sieve in the self-raising flour and ground almonds and mix gently. Beat the egg whites in a clean, grease-free bowl until very stiff and then fold into the mixture.

  4. Bake for 50–60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.

    Was ready in 40 minutes. Any longer and it would have burnt. Very good otherwise.
