Lemon and Almond Cake

Lemon and Almond Cake with white chocolate bits!

It’s moist, it melts in your mouth, it tastes even better the next day and to top all this – it’s wonderfully lemony. Do you need to hear more? I suppose not, you’re already in the kitchen, right? 😉


200 g butter, softened

200 g caster sugar

4 eggs

60 g sifted flour

220 g almond meal

1 block/100 g white chocolate, chopped

2 lemon zest

2 lemon juice


In a mixer, beat the butter with sugar until creamy. Add eggs – one at a time, flour and almond meal.

With the mixer on low, add lemon juice, zest and chocolate. Mix until well combined.

Using a spatula, transfer the batter into buttered springform and smooth the top. Bake in 175C fan forced for about 35-45 minutes.

Sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.

    Nope, definitely don’t need convincing to try this one. It sounds perfect. I wish I could have a little slither right now!

    I made this cake last week and it didn’t disappoint. As there is little flour in the recipe I decided to substitute the flour with gluten free flour as my son has coeliacs. It worked out perfectly.
    I will make this cake again.
