Strawberry and Disaronno bakewell cake

This cake was actually an experiment which turned out gorgeous, so I decided to post the recipe on my blog. instead of using ground almonds which is in the traditional bakewell recipe, I substituted it with Disaronno which is an Amaretto. It tasted amazing.

4 oz butter/margarine (room temp)
4 oz sugar
4 oz Self Raising flour
1 tea spoon Baking powder
2 eggs
2 table spoons of Disaronno (Amaretto)
Fresh or Frozen strawberries
Raspberry jam

Preparation Method:
Pre heat oven to 180
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time and mix well.
sift in flour and baking soda and mix together.
Now add the Disaronno and mix the batter well.
If the batter is too thick, you can add a little milk or warm water to it.
Pour half the mixture into a greased and floured cake tin and dot the strawberries in.
Drop some blobs of jam in the mix.
Add the rest of the cake mix on top of the strawberries and jam and spread carefully with a pallet knife.
Place in the middle shelf of your oven and cook for 30-40 minutes. ( check after 25 minutes with a skewer) Ovens vary in temp so yours may take less time.

Enjoy with a cuppa :)
I hope you like this recipe.
 I used Disaronno but feel free to use any Amaretto of your choice :)
