Ingredients

Recipe makes 1 medium round cake

80 grams (3 oz) Butter, softened
150 grams (2/3 cup) Caster sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla
2 med Eggs
125 grams (1 cup) Self-raising flour
80 ml (1/3 cup) Milk
100 grams (3½ oz) Ground almonds
zest of 1 lemon

For the syrup:

Juice of 1 lemon
2 teaspoons Ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons Honey

Flaked almonds to decorate

To prepare

Preheat your oven to 180ºC (350ºF, Gas mark 4). Grease a large springform cake tin and line with parchment paper – or use a ring tray for a wider cake.

Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and creamy. Add the vanilla and eggs and beat well using mixer beaters (or sheer arm strength). Sift the flour into this mixture, alternating with the milk and mix until just combined. Fold in the ground almonds and lemon zest. Pour this mixture into your prepared baking tin and bake for 40 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean.

Meanwhile, combine the syrup ingredients together over a medium heat. Pour this mixture over the top of your cake while it is still warm (perhaps plunging a few skewer holes into the top of the cake first for full flavour). Sprinkle with flaked almonds and enjoy.

Really good bit

You don’t really need to have the syrup on this cake; it’s almost as lovely without it. And of course you can substitute an orange in place of the lemon – or even a couple limes if you’re so inclined.

And, if you leave off the flaked almonds, this cake freezes beautifully in individual slices, which means you can easily pop one into your lunch box tomorrow, and next week too.
