Recipe Ingredients for Lemon & Almond Cake

2 fruit lemon
3 medium eggs
200 g fructose
55 g plain flour
200 g ground almonds
1 tsp baking powder

For the Icing:
4 oz caster sugar
50 g lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Lemon & Almond Cake

  1. Put the 2 lemons in a saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 1 hour.

  2. Halve the lemons, remove the pips, then purée in a blender, skin and all.

  3. Preheat the oven to 170C. Oil a 20cm, round springform cake tin and line with a disc of baking parchment.

  4. Beat the eggs and sugar together until pale and thick.

  5. Fold in the flour, baking powder, almonds and lemon purée.

  6. Pour into the tin and bake for one hour until the top is golden.

  7. Do keep an eye on it for the last 15 mins as fructose sugar is slightly more likely to catch. The cake will be fairly dark though.

  8. Beat together icing ingredients and pour over the cake while it is still HOT

  9. Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then turn out on to a rack and cool completely.
