Lined 9 inch square cake tin
Oven Gas mark 4/5
8oz Caster Sugar
7oz Self Raising Flour
1oz Ground Almonds
2oz Chopped nuts (I used pecan nuts)
Into a large bowl put the sugar and butter and cream. Add eggs one at a time with a little of the flour. Beat well until all 4 are in the mixture. Stir in the remainder of the flour, the ground almonds, a teaspoon of ground almond essence, the sultanas and the nuts.
Pour into the baking tin and place in the oven for 45 – 60 minutes. Check regularly after 45 minutes so taht the cake does not over cook.
Leave to cool and serve with your favourite brew.
