The ground almonds in this cake give it a lovely moist texture. You can replace the nectarines with apples or plums (you'd need 5 or 6 plums) depending on the time of year or occasion. - Nichola

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
180g unsalted butter, softened
180g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs, at room temperature
100g ground almonds
150g self-raising flour, sifted
3 ripe nectarines, stoned and cut into 1-cm- thick slices
fresh raspberries
flaked almonds
icing sugar, for dusting

Equipment:

Quantity Ingredient
23 cm round loose-bottomed cake tins

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°c.
  2. Line the base and sides of the cake tin with greaseproof paper.
  3. Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla extract in the large bowl of a freestanding mixer or with an electric hand mixer until pale and creamy, then beat in the eggs, one at a time. Fold the ground almonds and flour into the mixture until combined.
  4. Spoon and spread enough of the cake mixture into the tin to cover the bottom (a bit less than half). Lay the nectarine slices and raspberries on the mixture.
  5. Spoon and spread the remaining cake mixture over the top of the fruit. Don’t worry if the fruit pokes out of the mixture here and there.
  6. Scatter the flaked almonds over the top and bake in the oven for 45–50 minutes, until the cake is golden brown and a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin. Once cooled, dust with a little icing sugar.
