This almond cake recipe is flavoured with fragrant freshly squeezed orange juice. It’s luscious, moist, and decadent, and secretly so easy to create!


  • 230g golden caster sugar
  • 225g butter, softened
  • zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 100g almonds, roughly chopped
  • icing sugar, for dusting


Step 1

Grease and line the base and sides of a 23cm loose-bottomed, round cake tin with baking paper and heat oven to 180°C.

Step 2

Tip the sugar, the butter, orange zest and juice into a large bowl and beat with an electric whisk until well blended. Add the flour, ground almonds, baking powder and eggs, then beat again until smooth. Spoon into the tin and level the top.

Step 3

Sprinkle with the chopped almonds, then bake in the centre of the oven for 1 hour until risen, golden and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cover with foil if the cake starts to brown too much during baking. Leave in the tin for 15 minutes before removing and cooling completely on a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
