- 150g of unsalted butter
- 200g of organic honey
- 50g of stevia
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 225g ground almonds
- Half a cup of sliced almonds
- Desiccated coconut / icing sugar (optional)
Step – by – Step :
Grease a large cake tin with unsalted butter and put greaseproof paper on top – My mum told me this works best, don’t ask why!
Heat the butter.
Put 100g of the honey, the stevia, eggs and vanilla into a bowl and, using an electric whisk, beat for 3–4 minutes till light and fluffy. Then mix in the melted butter and ground almonds with a spoon.
Pour the mix into your prepared cake tin.
Bake in a pre-heated oven for 26–30 minutes till your knife comes out clean – keep checking the mix after about 18 minutes.
Toast the sliced almonds on a baking tray in the oven for about 8-11 minutes. Keep checking them as they can burn easily.
Leave the cake cool for an hour or so.
Heat the remainder of the honey – I did it in a microwave and it worked fine – and pour the hot honey over the cake. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and some icing sugar/coconut to make it look fancy!
