  • Preheat oven to 180 C/ 160 C fan and grease and line a 20 cm round cake tin.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between additions. Add the vanilla.
  • Sift in the flour, and add the ground almonds. Combine well. The mixture will be thick.
  • Fold in the fruit and spoon into the prepared tin, leveling the top with a spatula.
  • Bake for 60 minutes, or until a skewer, inserted in the middle, comes out clean and the top of the cake is lovely and golden.
  • Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Dust with plenty of icing sugar and serve!
