    1. 1
      Heat oven to 180°C.
    2. 2
      Butter and line the base of a 20cm round cake tin.
    3. 3
      Beat the butter and caster sugar in a large bowl using electric hand whisk until pale and creamy.
    4. 4
      Add the lemon zest (reserving half a tsp for the icing) and mix well.
    5. 5
      Gradually whisk the eggs into the butter mix--don't worry if it curdles a bit.
    6. 6
      Sift together the flour and baking powder and fold into the egg and butter mix using a large metal spoon or spatula.
    7. 7
      Add the ground almonds and 3/4 of the lemon juice; fold until thoroughly combined.
    8. 8
      Spoon into the cake tin and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
    9. 9
      Put cake tin on wire rack to cool for 10 minutes.
    10. 10
      Meanwhile, mix together the remaining lemon juice and zest and enough icing sugar to make a runny icing and then drizzle over top of cake.
    11. 11
      Cool in tin for a further 30 minutes and then remove and cool completely.

      Yum! I have made lemon drizzle cake to a similar recipe before, but never used ground almonds. I tried this and it worked really well - adding a subtle, well, 'almondy' flavour! Will definitely use again.
