Preheat oven to 160 degress, fan forced. Butter and line the base of a 23cm springform cake tin. In a food processor, mix the ground almonds, butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon, egg and egg yolk until evenly mixed.
Tip kalf the mixture in the tin, and smooth. Spread the strawberries on top. Top with the remaining cake mixture; spread smooth.
Bake for 1 hour - 1 hour 5 minutes. Check after 40 minutes - if the torte is getting too brown, cover loosley with foil. When cooked, the torte should be slightly risen and dark golden brown.
