Syrupy Macadamia and Lime Polenta Squares




▫️ 100g crushed macadamia (blitzed in food processor)

▫️ 100g ground almonds

▫️ 125 g fine polenta (blitzed in food processor for extra fineness)

▫️ 1½ tsp baking powder

▫️ 225 g softened butter

▫️ 225 g golden caster sugar

▫️ zest of 2 limes

▫️ 3 eggs beaten


▫️ Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan. Grease a 23cm square loose bottomed tin, and line the base with baking parchment.

▫️ Place the ground macadamia and almonds, polenta and baking powder into a bowl and stir. Set aside.

▫️ Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the lime zest.

▫️ Add half of the dry ingredients and half of the eggs, and beat to combine. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

▫️ Spoon the mixture into the tin, and level with the back of the spoon. Bake for approximately 35-40 minute.

▫️ As soon as the cake is removed from the oven, prick the top all over with a thin metal skewer or cake tester, and cut into squares. Leave to cool in the tin. When cool, remove each square carefully. Sprinkle with sieved icing sugar and serve.
