Cake Almond Cake in Honey Syrup by Lisa

posted by Lisa UK July 99

Revani Almond Cake in Honey Syrup

100grams/4 ounces of butter or margarine
225 grams/8 ounces caster sugar
4 eggs lightly beaten
100 grams/4 ounces ground almonds
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon…more if you like it
225grams/8 ounces fine semolina

Syrup
225grams/8 ounces caster sugar
300 mils / 1/2 pint water
3 tbs lemon juice
50grams/2 oz blanched almonds split

Cream the butter and the sugar together until soft and creamy.

Beat the eggs into the mixture then add the ground almonds, cinnamon and semolina.

Line an 18 x 28 cm Swiss roll tin with greased paper, allowing the paper to stand about 1 inch higher than the
tin.

Spread the mixture in the tin and decorate with the split almonds, and bake for about 1 hour. (180C/Gas 4/ 350F).

Prepare the syrup:
Dissolve sugar and water in a pan and then add the lemon juice and bring to the boil.

Simmer for about 5 minutes until reduced slightly.

You can add lemon zest if you wish or even a cinnamon stick.

Some people add orange zest too.

Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

Cut the cake into squares and then pour over the syrup.

Serve when cooled…if it lasts that long!!
