Serves 8-10 Prep and cook time: 50mins

For The Cake:

  • 400g Unsalted Butter (at room temp, soft)
  • 400g Caster Sugar
  • 7x Medium Eggs (total weight 400g)
  • 300g Ground Almonds
  • 100g Self Raising Flour
  • 1x Tsp Baking Powder
  • 2x Oranges (zested and the juice of them)
  • 1x Tsp Almond Extract

For The Frosting:

  • 350g Full Fat Cream Cheese
  • 140g Icing Sugar
  • 200mls Double Cream
  • 150g Trewithen Dairy Cornish Clotted Cream
  • 1x Tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 2x Oranges (zested)

Toppings:

  • 400g Fresh Raspberries

Preheat the oven to 160c fan

Almond and Orange Cake With Orange Frosting Method:

  1. Grease and line x3 20cm Deep Cake Tins*.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar until soft and pale for roughly 2 mins using an electric mixer.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time until fully incorporated. 
  4. Gently fold the ground almonds, flour, and baking powder into the mix with a pinch of salt 
  5. Stir in the orange zest and juice along with the almond essence through the cake mix.
  6. Divide the mix between the x3 cake tins and place in the oven to bake for 35 mins.
  7. Check the cake is cooked by inserting a toothpick or skewer into the centre. If it is clean when removed, the cake is cooked. If it’s a little sticky, pop it back in the oven for another couple of minutes. Remove the cake tins and allow them to rest for 5 mins before removing them from the tins onto a cooling rack.
  8. Whilst the cakes are cooling you can make the frosting. Using an electric mixer, place the cream and cream cheese into a bowl and mix together. Add the icing sugar, orange zest, a pinch of salt, and vanilla extract. Mix together again until you get a nice thick frosting. Place in the fridge until ready to ice the cake. 
  9. Once the cake is cooled, take the first sponge and place onto a plate or cake stand.
  10. Spoon some of the icing onto the cake and spread evenly. Take some fresh raspberries and dot them on the icing. Place the next cake on top and repeat. Place the final cake on top and, using the remaining icing, cover the cake sides and top. We like to do a naked look around the sides with a fuller top.
  11. Decorate with the remaining raspberries and edible flowers then serve.

Tip:

If you want to get ahead you can make the sponges in advance and freeze them until needed. That way you only have to make the icing on the day and assemble it.

This cake will keep in the fridge for a couple of days but is best eaten on the day of baking.
