  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced). Lightly grease and line a 22cm springform cake tin with baking paper. Spread the 1 tablespoon of butter onto the lined base and spread evenly. Sprinkle over the brown sugar. Arrange the nectarine slices on the butter and brown sugar mixture.
  2. Place the extra butter, caster sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold the flour into the creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Fold in the ground almonds. Spoon the batter evenly over the nectarines.
  3. Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove the tin from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for 15 minutes. Release the springform mechanism, then carefully turn the cake out onto a platter. Serve warm with mascarpone or whipped cream on the side.
