  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line with baking paper a 20 cm x 24 cm lamington tray.
  • Place the almond topping ingredients in a suitably sized saucepan and cook over low heat until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. Set aside to cool.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the flours together in a bowl to ensure they are evenly combined. In a separate bowl, cream the 150 g butter and 100 g caster sugar together with the vanilla - you can use electric beaters for this step.
  • Slowly add the combined flours and beat until combined. If you are using electric beaters, be sure to do this on low speed or you will be showered with flour!
  • Press the dough into the prepared baking tin and bake for about 15 mins or until the base is a light golden brown. Allow to cool for 10 mins.
  • Spread the jam over the slightly cooled base ensuring even coverage right to the edges. Top with the cooked almond mixture.
  • Return the slice to the oven for a further 25 mins or so, keeping a close eye towards the end - you want the almonds to turn a lovely, caramelised golden brown, but you do not want them to burn.
  • Cool in the tin before cutting into squares. If desired, dust with icing sugar before serving.
