Vincenzo’s Top Tips To Make Almond Cake

Once you have made the green pasta, roll a handful of the strands around your fingers, creating little nests and leave to rest on a tray lined with baking paper. Sprinkle with flour and leave until you are ready to cook OR put the tray in the freezer until the green pasta is frozen, then transfer into zip lock bags or air-tight containers.

  • In another bowl, add the rest of the butter (melted), 3 eggs, ½ teaspoon almond extract, greek yoghurt and whisk well so everything combines.
  • Mix the wet ingredients with the dry, into one bowl and add it to the baking tray.
  • Spread the almond cake mixture evenly, moving it around until it is even on top.
  • Remove the top of the figs and cut them into slices, then place them around the edges of the tin, on top of your almond cake mixture, then add to the centre, until there are no gaps.
  • Place the cake into the oven for 30-35min then let cool for 15-20minutes.
  • Using a knife, gently check whether the cake has stuck to the side of the pan, by poking down around the crevices to help release it, making it easy to remove.
