Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Grease a 20 x 30cm baking or roasting tin and line with baking parchment. To make the sponge batter, beat the butter, flour, sugar, baking powder, eggs, yogurt, vanilla and almond extract in a large bowl with an electric whisk until lump-free. Spoon into the tin and bake for 10 mins.
  2. Quickly dot over the jam, scatter over the almonds, then bake for 15-20 mins more until golden and risen and a skewer poked in comes out clean. Cool in the tin, then dust with icing sugar.

This is lovely - will definitely be making it again, maybe with different types of jam?

Dead simple, really quick to throw together and results perfect every time. Cake keeps well and you get a good yield from 1 batch.

Love this recipe! It's so easy to do and perfect results every time. I used plain flour and added 2 1/2 tsp baking powder and used vanilla yoghurt. No almond extract. I baked this as a simple cake and filled with cherry pie filling. Definitely a keeper. Also good for carving.

These are delicious. I made them for the 'Big Lunch' and they went down a treat.
