DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325. Grease a 12 x 8 cake tin.
  • In a saucepan, dissolve the sugar in the water over high heat. Add the lemon juice and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and leave to cool.
  • While the syrup is cooking, cream the butter, sugar and lemon rind with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Sift together the semolina and flour and then fold into the butter mixture alternately with the milk. Mix in the chopped almonds.
  • Spread the mixture in the cake tin and arrange rows of flaked almonds on top.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the cake is golden and shrinks slightly from the sides of the tin.
  • Prick the surface with a fine skewer and then pour the cooled syrup over the hot cake.
  • When the cake is cool, cut into squares or diamonds.
