Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas4/ fan 160C. Line the base of a loose-bottomed 23cm cake tin with greaseproof paper and butter the sides.

  2. Mix almonds, butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon, egg and egg yolk in a food processor just until the ingredients are evenly combined.

  3. Spread half the mixture over the base of the tin in a smooth layer with no gaps – easiest to do this with two forks. Lay the sliced strawberries on top. Add the remaining cake mixture and spread it as best you can, but don’t worry if a few strawberries peep through.

  4. Bake for 1 hour (it may need an extra 5 minutes), but check after 40 minutes – if it is getting too brown, cover loosely with foil. The torte should be slightly risen and dark golden brown when cooked.

  5. 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, in wedges with dollops of cream and Greek yogurt.

Really easy and tasty. I used 2 whole medium eggs and cooked for 1 hour.

I made this recipe using vegetable oil instead of butter,to lower the saturated fat levels. It turned out great,i didn't need to make it in the food processor,just beat the ingredients together in a bowl. I have also substituted blueberries for the strawberries. what a really easy and scrummy recipe. I have decided to make this for the next Eatmore Pudding Club competition.

Loved it! I'm not usually a fan of almonds in cakes but this was delicious! I didn't think the dough mixture would be enough and also found it very thick, not runny like a normal sponge cake. Consequently I added the egg white (so in total I used two full eggs) and about 50ml milk. It turned out perfectly and tasted amazing! (although took more like 40mins in the oven)

Nice and Easy but wash the pan straight away or you'll have the encrusted fruit on there forever!

i've done this cake several times, however the bottom always browns too much, practically burnt while inside and on top it's fine. i've baked it at the correct temperature for 40 minutes and placed the tin on a baking sheet too and double lined the bottom of the tin with greaseproof paper. Any ideas how to prevent this from happening?

very disappointed with this. Tasted it at work when colleague brought it in and I thought it was lovely. Mine was very soft and stodgy. I followed the recipe exactly. Don't know what went wrong but won't be wasting the money for the strawberries again.

My husband is a man who has a very very sweet tooth and oh boy did he love this cake. Very unhappy when our son helped him eat it lol. This is a very simple cake to make which looks like you've put a lot of effort into it - will definitely be maing again (my husband says yes but only when our son has left home so he doesn't have to share).
