  • Beat the butter and sugar in a mixer with the whisk attachment until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, waiting for each addition to be completely combined before adding the next.
  • When the eggs have been completely combined, add the polenta, ground almonds and baking powder. Mix.
  • Add the lemon zest and lemon juice and mix for another 1 minute.
  • Transfer mixture to cake pan. Smooth surface with the back of a wet spoon.
  • Bake for 50 minutes or until you insert a knife into the cake and it comes out clean and dry.

  • Arrange the strawberry mixture nicely over the top of the cake and serve.

You can simply combine the lemon juice with the caster sugar and glaze the cake instead of adding strawberries…
