With the zest and juice of four lemons expect a big flavour hit from this lovely Lemon, Polenta and Almond Cake.

The ground almonds and polenta give the cake a gorgeous texture and a splash of amaretto never hurts now does it. This is an easy to make cake that is unfailingly reliable. And always delicious – completely and utterly delicious.

When choosing your lemons, select the ones that seem heavy for their size and feel slightly soft. They should give a little in your hand when you gently squeeze them. These will be the juiciest lemons.
