Preparation Time 30 minutes
Cooking Time 60 minutes

Ingredients (serves 16)

Melted butter, to grease
375g butter, softened
645g (3 cups) caster sugar
9 eggs
155g (1 1/2 cups) almond meal
225g (1 1/2 cups) plain flour
115g (3/4 cup) self-raising flour
1 x 300g ctn sour cream
500g mixed jelly beans (Jelly Belly brand), to decorate
Vienna cream
125g butter, softened
230g (1 1/2 cups) icing sugar mixture
1 tbs milk


Preheat panggangan to 160°C. Brush a 24 x 36cm (base measurement) baking pan with melted butter to lightly grease. Line the base and sides with non-stick baking paper.

Use an electric beater to beat together the butter and sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition until combined. Stir in almond meal, flours and sour cream until combined. Spoon mixture evenly into prepared pan. Bake in preheated panggangan for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from panggangan and turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.

To decorate: Use a large serrated knife to trim the top of the cake. Cut a thick piece of paper into a 24 x 36cm rectangle. Draw a large 8 (or the number of your choice) on the paper. Cut out the number and attach to the top of the cake with pins. Using the paper as a guide, use a small sharp knife to cut out the number. Place cake on a large serving plate.

To make the Vienna cream, use an electric beater to beat the butter until very pale and creamy. Gradually add the icing sugar and milk, beating well after each addition, until all the icing sugar is incorporated and icing is pale and creamy.

Use a palate knife to spread the Vienna cream evenly over the top and sides of the cake.

Top the cake with jelly beans to decorate.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
