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 baked this one with blueberries for a charity cake sale and it was the first one to get sold (of all of the cakes there). Since I didn't get to taste it, I have no idea if it is any good though ;-) but after reading the comments here I don't think that is a problem at all. I'll just have to make it again for myself. What a chore...

I've already baked this twice and people just LOVE it. This evening I baked it for 3 adults and 2 toddlers and it's already all gone. This is probably the BEST cake recipe I've ever had - so delicious and super easy. BBC Good Food never disappoints me!

Tried this recipe at the weekend and it turned out great! Supprisingly light given that it was an all in one method!

Very easy to make, so far have made it twice. My husband and son both enjoyed and it went down well at the WI.

Really easy to make and tasted delicious. However I did expect it to taste alot more almondy but I could hardly taste them and I added the amount stated in the recipe.

I didn't like this recipe as much as the Cherry Bakewell cake from a previous issue. It didn't taste bakewelly or sweet enough for me... maybe needed some almond essence. The squidgy baked raspberries were a nice touch though.

Good recipe - it turned out perfectly - just not really my cup of tea. This is nice but the cherry bakewell cake is so much better.
I've still given it 5* though as everyone loved it.

It was really quick and easy to make. perfect for sundays with unexpected guests... and tastes great on it's own or my partener prefers to warm it in microwave and eat with clotted cream ice-creams.

Made this yesterday and it went down an absolute treat. Very easy to make and turned out exactly as shown on the picture. My oven was overcrowded with a roast of meat and pototoes so tried this in the microwave using the convector oven option. I didn't have to check on it at all. Will definitely make this again.

Hi from South Africa. Not easy to get raspberries here so used frozen mixed berries (defrosted and drained). It was super. Will definitely try it again either with canned apricots or peaches or raspberry jam.

Excellent recipe. Easy to put together even in a food mixer (I don't have a food processor). I made it first thing in the morning and we ate it in the evening. By then the raspberries had created a damp/soggy layer through the middle, but it tasted great, no leftovers. Will do again with different fruit.

Just the easiest, tastiest cake ever! I made it for a wonderful summer party for friends, they all loved it. Instead of raspberries I used apple - we had fresh fruit salad as well so wanted a change. Gorgeous.

Another hit - really easy cake to make - just blob the mixture over the fruit and lightly spread with knife. I sprinkled mine with dem. sugar as husband doesn't like flaked almonds! Also used some frozen blackberries straight from the freezer - needed longer cooking (about 20 mins extra) but worked a treat. Used as pudding with dorset clotted cream - yum!!

Really simple, light and moist. The only thing I found was that I had to use a smaller tin as there didn't seem to be enough mixture for a larger tin.

Have made this cake twice within a week, it really was that good. I had a glut of tayberries from the allotment so I used them on the 2nd occasion and it was just as good.
Such a fine tasting cake should not be that easy to make...

That cake is delicious but when we were eating and the cake went crumbles which was difficult to eat it. Need to put something to hold the cake together. I will make it again, perhaps will put more flour or eggs.
