Recipe: Almond cake

This moist cake recipe is a good way to use up left over dried fruits and nuts (you can use up to 100g for this cake) as sometimes we do not have more than a spoonful left of each mixture after using them in other recipes. You may make it in advance and freeze the cake until you need it.


  • 100 g butter
  • 50 g soft brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 100 g self raising flour
  • 100 g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 50 g flaked almonds to coat the top pre baking


  1. Preheat oven to 160 C. Grease a 20 cm cake tin. 
  2. Mix together the butter, sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder, milk and honey in a large mixing bowl. 
  3. When the ingredients are mixed well together, spoon into a prepared tin and level the surface with the back of a spoon. 
  4. Sprinkle with almonds and bake for 35 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
