This was my first attempt at a fruity loaf, so I was a tad apprehensive before I started this recipe. But as a novice, I have to say it is the easiest recipe I have ever used. Perfect for a beginner! The resulting loaf is fruity, moist and sweet with a lovely unexpected tang from the lemon drizzle. It's so good my dad even recommends it and he NEVER recommends my baking (usually too sweet for him)! Give it a go and enjoy.

This cake came about from an inspired moment when craving almonds. It's absolutely divine and has become an often requested recipe. One warning however, whenever I cook this cake it seems to disappear very quickly so make sure you get a slice. I've said the recipe serves 8 but it serves 6-8 depending on how much cake one likes at any sitting!
