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.

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.

This recipe is so easy to make, everyone love it in my family!

I tired to put strawberry, blackberry & blueberry as well, made it to a summer berry Bakewell cake!

I will try adding apple, hope it goes well.

Easy to make and absolutely delicious. I don't have a food processor so just used a hand mixer instead.

My husband loves bakewell tart so this made a lovely easy way of ringing the changes. It freezes well too.

This is lovely and really quick to prepare. I've made this several times and it works well with different fruit. So far, I've tried blueberries, strawberries and planning to try apple next. Yum!
