I just love the smell of home- baking and there is nothing like pottering about on a Sunday and making yourself a simple cake so you have something nice to eat and look foward to for the cold, wet days when you come home during the week.Here is how you can have you cake and eat it- hahaha- sorry for the lame joke!
250 gr butter
250 gr caster sugar
100 gr ground almonds
100 gr flour
How to make the cake :
Beat the butter and sugar till white and fluffy.Mix the ground almonds and flour.
Add the eggs to the butter and sugar mixture one at the time, and beat this well while doing so.
Grate the lemon for lemon zets then juice it so you have the lemon juice as well.Add the lemon zest to the egg and butter/ sugar mixture, then add about a third of the almonds+ flour mixture to the butter and sugar mixture.
Mix , then add the second bit of almonds + flour.Mix.Then add the third bit of almonds + flour .
Pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees Centigrade. Line and butter a 23 cm cake tin with removable base.
Add to your cake batter the lemon juice- then mix well.
Put the cake batter in your cake tin , then bake for about half an hour.Check if done by putting in a knitting needle- it should come out clean.
Enjoy your baking and your cake!
