  • 300 g caster sugar
  • a few drops of lemon juice
  • 150 ml of pure cream - warmed
  • 75 g of salted butter - cubed
  • For the Cake
  • 450 ml of milk
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 70 g of salted butter - melted
  • 90 g of plain flour
  • pinch of salt


  • Firstly, make the caramel. Place the caster sugar and lemon juice into a large thick bottomed saucepan and cook over a medium/high heat until the sugar mets and turns a lovely caramel colour. While the sugar is cooking, place the single cream into a small microwave safe bowl and warm slightly.
  • Once the caramel has changed colour, carefully add the warm cream before removing the saucepan from the heat and stirring in the cubed salted butter.
  • Set aside 100g of the caramel and add the milk to the remaining caramel in the saucepan. Place the saucepan over a medium heat and bring the mixture to the boil until the caramel has been completely dissolved in the milk. Allow to cool.
  • Preheat your oven to 150 degrees and line and grease a 24cm round cake tin.
  • Beat the egg yolks with the melted butter and fold through the flour and salt before adding the caramel milk a little at a time and beating constantly.
  • Beat the egg whites in an elective mister until they are still and use a whisk to gently fold them through the cake batter - t's ok if you batter is still lumpy!
  • Pour the cake batter into the prepared tin and smooth the surface with the back of a knife. Place the cake into oven for 55 minutes to cook. When you remove the cake it will still wobble slightly.
  • Once the cake had cooled for 20 minutes in the tin, transfer it to the fridge to completely cool for a minimum or 2 hours - or overnight if possible before removing it from it's tin.
  • Serve the cake straight from the fridge with the caramel you have put aside and some lightly toasted almonds.
