Amaretto Almond Cake
Amaretto Almond Cake
(Torta di Mandorla e Amaretto)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
6 oz (170 grams) butter
6 oz (170 grams) caster sugar (superfine sugar)
3 eggs
3 oz (85 grams) ground almonds (freshly-ground nuts give good flavor and texture)
3 oz (85 grams) self-raising flour
4 tbsp Amaretto liqueur
 
Directions:
 
Preheat the oven to 300 F (150 C).

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs and nuts, then fold in the flour.

Scrape into a lined 2 lb loaf tin and bake for 35-45 minutes until golden brown and springy to the touch.

Jab all over the top with a skewer and spoon the Amaretto over.

Leave to cool before taking out of the tin.

That's it!
