Strawberry torte
An amazing dessert to make and extremely easy.

175g ground almonds

175g butter softened

175g golden caster sugar

175g self-raising flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 large egg, plus 1 egg yolk

450g strawberries, hulled and sliced

Icing sugar, for dusting

Whipped double cream, to serve

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas mark 4.

Line the base of a loose-bottomed 23cm cake tin with greaseproof paper and butter the sides.

Using a food processor, blitz the almonds, butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon, egg and egg yolk until the ingredients are evenly combined.

Spread half the mixture over the base of the tin in a smooth layer making sure it is well spread leaving no gaps.

 Lay the sliced strawberries on top.

Pour in the remaining mixture and spread it out not worrying if a few strawberries poke through.

Bake for 1 hour, checking at the 40 minute mark – if it is getting too brown, cover loosely with foil.

The torte should be slightly risen and dark golden brown when ready.

Cool in the tin slightly, then loosen the edges with a knife and remove from the tin.

Slide the torte onto a plate and sprinkle with a dusting of icing sugar.

Serve warm or cold.
