Heat the oven to 170C/150C fan/gas 3. Lightly butter the base of a 900g loaf tin and line with baking paper. Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until light and fluffy using an electric whisk or in a stand mixer.
Beat in the egg a little at a time, adding a spoonful of flour if the mixture begins to curdle. Stir in the vanilla, then fold in the remaining flour, ground almonds and lemon zest. Add 1 tbsp of the lemon juice, and stir until smooth – add a little more of the lemon juice if needed.
Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 55 mins-1 hr until risen and golden. If it starts to brown too quickly, cover with foil. Cool for 15 mins in the tin, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely before slicing to serve.
