- 225 grams (8 oz) unsalted butter

How to make Madeira Cake
My Tip:1. If you want to skip the almond flour then just use 225 grams of plain flour (total). The addition of almond gives the cake a great flavour, texture and also helps keep it moist for longer so I strongly recommend you to use it. 2. You can use this cake to make the base of trifle puddings however since trifles usually call for cakes that are not very moist (because you want a cake that holds the several layers of pudding and jelly and not turn into a squishy mess when served) you can bake this cake for slightly longer (an extra 5-10 mins) to give the dry texture.
