Lemon and Almond Cake

with white chocolate bits!

It’s moist, it melts in your mouth, it taste 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 spring form 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.
