Iced Almond Cake


For the cake

  • 115g (4oz) ground almonds
  • 115g (4oz) icing sugar
  • 85g (3oz) plain white flour
  • 3 free range egg yolks
  • 125ml (4 fl oz) melted butter

For the icing

  • 175g (6oz) icing sugar
  • 1½ tblsp boiling water

You will need a 7in round tin with shallow sides.


  1. Preheat the oven to 150ºC (Fan). Grease the tin well with melted butter, then dust with a little flour.
  2. Put all the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Make a well in the centre and add in the egg yolks and the cooled melted butter. Stir until all the ingredients are mixed. Make a hollow in the centre and tap the tin on the side to release any air bubbles. The mixture may seem quite stiff but that’s normal.
  3. Bake for 35 mins. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning on to a wire rack. Allow to cool before icing.
  4. To make the icing, sieve the icing sugar into a bowl and mix in the water. Stir this really well, the more you stir the whiter the icing gets. It should have a thick consistency. Use a palette knife dipped in hot water and dried to spread the icing evenly over the cake.  Decorate how you please.
