- Preheat the oven to 150C. Line a lightly greased spring form cake tin with baking paper.
Place sugar and mint in the TM bowl for 5 sec on Sp 7. Add butter, beat for 20 sec on Sp 5.
Add remaining cake ingredients and combine for 1 min on Sp 6
Pour batter into tin and bake for approx 1 hour. Check the cake is baked by inserting a skewer in the centre. If it comes out clean, the cake is ready. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 5-10 mins
While the cake is baking, make the mint syrup. Place sugar and mint in the bowl for 10sec on sp 7
Add water and cook for 10min at 100C on Sp 1. Allow to cool for 30-40 mins.
After the cake has been removed from the oven & allowed to cool, start the honey & almond mix. Place butter, honey and almonds in the bowl and melt together for 5 mins at 90C on reverse Sp 1
When cake comes out of the oven and has had its initial cooling time in the tin, prick 50-60 holes in the top. Slowly pour the mint syrup evenly over the cake, allowing it to soak in for a couple of minutes.
Spread the honey & almond mix over the top of the cake.
Place the cake back in the oven for a further 10-15 minutes at 170C until the topping is a light amber colour.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 20-30 minutes. Take the cake out of the tin carefully and while it is still warm, gently remove the baking paper. Dust the cake with icing sugar before serving
