Preheat the oven to 180C.  Line & grease a 20cm spring form cake tin.

Place the butter and the sugar in a large bowl and beat until light and fluffy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well.

Stir in the ground almonds, cake flour, vanilla, zest, polenta and baking powder Add  a splash of milk – the mixture should be a soft dropping consistency.

Pour this mixture into the baking tin, and place in the oven.  Bake for 55mins to 1 hour, until the cake is golden brown.  Insert a skewer into the centre, if it comes out clean the cake is done.

Allow the cake to cool.

Serve the cake with berries and crème fraiche.
