Cranberry Almond Crust Butter Cake 蔓越莓杏仁奶油蛋糕

I love this butter cake especially the generous topping of cranberries and almond crust, make it look gorgeous and taste even better!

90g unsalted butter
2 eggs
75g castor sugar
60g cake flour, sifted
20g corn flour

90g Almond slices
50g Honey
30g Butter
some cranberries

Method :
  • Sift corn flour and cake flour together, set aside.
  • Beat sugar and eggs until pale and fluffy (over a bowl of hot water).
  • Fold in flour with a rubber spatula, fold well.
  • Take 1/3 flour mixture (3) and melted butter, beat until mixture incorporated.
  • Add in the balance mixture and mix well.
  • Pour batter into prepared cake pan.
  • Bake at preheated oven at 180C for 30-35 mins.
To prepare honey almond crust topping
  • Add butter, honey and almond slices in a saucepan over low heat. Add in cranberries. Ensure that the almond slices and cranberries are well-coated with the honey-butter mixture.
  • Top with the honey almond crust mixture evenly over the cake and return the cake to the oven at 180C until the almond are golden brown, about 10-12 mins.
