Method

  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.

I have an allergy to egg yolk so made it with 3 egg whites instead. It came out lovely, tasted great and even looked like the picture in the magazine. It didn't last long in our house and there are only 2 of us.

So easy to make. I used home grown raspberries out of the freezer, allow a little longer for cooking due to extra liquid. Gorgeous, will definitely bake again.

After reading all the comments from others, I also 'tweaked' this recipe. I don't like raspberries so used blueberries, and replaced the vanilla with almond essence. I cooked it in my (850 watt) microwave oven for 5mins 30 secs. This is really delicious, quick and easy and I will definitely make it again with other fruit and spices, perhaps apple and cinnamon, or pears, or...almost anything!

I made this cake last night using frozen raspberries and it turned out great. I like that it can all be thrown together in the food processor. One less appliance to haul out as I use the food processor to chop the almonds, then add the rest of the ingredients. I will definitely make this delicious cake again!

I baked this last Tuesday. I had been eyeballing this recipe since the issue it was in fell through my mail slot! When I went to put it into the oven, my oven was broken. :-( I did not want to waste what looked to be a delicious cake and so I dashed off to the store and picked up a convection/microwave/grill combi oven, which I had been thinking about buying anyways. Despite having had to sit for a full hour and a half before being baked, it turned out lovely. This is definitely one of my favourite cakes. I even blogged about it on "The English Kitchen." If you'd like to see the delicious pictures I took of it, go and have a peek!

I baked this on Sunday, had to bake a second one on Tuesday, the family loved it! When making it on Tuesday I did not have enough raspberries so I added some blobs of jam amonst the few raspberries I had. It worked well.

This is a really easy but very delicious cake. I made it with apricots instead of raspberries, and it was very tasty.

This cake is just superb. Eat it as pud with some creme fraiche or on it's own with a cup of tea - either way it doesn't hang around for long. Really easy to make and so tasty.

This recipe went down a storm after a recent bbq. Five different puddings were put down on the table and this one disappeared first (shortly followed by flourless chocolate cake). Will be making this again and again.
