This cake is moist and delicious and was an all time favourite cooked by my Mother for the family

 

 

 

Ingredients:

 

150 g / 5 oz ground almonds

1 heaped tbs self raising flour

140 g / 4 oz golden caster sugar

3 large eggs

Icing sugar

 

 

AND THIS IS WHAT YOU DO......

 

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180c/Fan 170c.
     

  2. Butter and flour a round cake tin.
     

  3. Beat the eggs and sugar until light and creamy.
     

  4. Gradually add the almonds and self raising flour.
     

  5. Spoon this mixture into the baking tin and cook for 25 - 35 mins - checking with a knife in the centre, which should come out clean and the cake will start to come away from the sides.
     

  6. Turn onto a wire rack to cool, then dust with icing sugar.
