  1. Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas 3. Grease a 23cm square baking tin. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Remove from heat and add 150g white chocolate chips, but do not stir.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Gradually mix in the sugar. Stir together the softened chips and butter, and blend into the egg mixture along with the almond extract. Combine the flour and salt; stir into the mixture until just mixed. Spread just half of the mixture into the prepared tin.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. In a small saucepan, over low heat, warm the jam to make it more liquid. Spread the jam over the warm base. Stir the remaining 150g white chocolate chips into the remaining mixture, then drop the rest of the mixture by teaspoonfuls over the jam. Sprinkle with almonds.
  4. Bake for an additional 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool in tin on a wire rack before cutting into slices.
