  • 2 tbsp flaked almond

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and base-line and grease a deep 20cm loose-bottomed cake tin. Blitz the ground almonds, butter, sugar, flour, eggs and vanilla extract in a food processor until well combined.

  2. Spread half the mix over the cake tin and smooth over the top. Scatter the raspberries over, then dollop the remaining cake mixture on top and roughly spread – you might find this easier to do with your fingers. Scatter with flaked almonds and bake for 50 mins until golden. Cool, remove from the tin and dust with icing sugar to serve.

Wish I could rate this a hundred stars!!! One of the best recipes for cakes I have ever come across. So easy to make. Tastes beyond description, words fail me. Love this cake so much, and I enjoy making it as well. Looks pretty as well. Made one for work, and it went very quickly. I follow recipe exactly, leave in oven an extra five minutes or so, and it comes out perfect.

Yummy although mine was slightly soggy in centre. Might have needed to be done longer at lower heat perhaps.

I was going to make this cake to take to friends for a get-together, but my teenage daughter made it for me. Very easy, looks impressive when it's cooked, and gets more moist the longer you keep it. I love almond flavour, so would use almond essence instead of vanilla, however, daughter doesn't, so vanilla it was. Going to use some tired blueberries in it today. Yum, yum.
