  • 2 tbsp flaked almond
  • icing sugar, to serve


  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.

Baked the cake for 40min instead of 50 and still turned out way too dry. My boyfriend liked it. I ate it, didn't enjoy it, though. Quite a boring cake. Asking my mum she said she'd rate it a 2/5...

Used frozen blackberries instead of raspberries and although it was delicious, I think raspberries would be better.

Made this last week for mothers day and am making again this weekend to take to work for a treat. So easy and came out looking just like the illustration. Highly recommended.

I made this as a tart with the raspberries on top and sprinkled it with flaked almonds. I added a small amount of buttermilk to the eggs and also used almond essence instead of vanilla. ery impressive result for the amount of work involved.

I have nothing but praise for this perfect cake. It turned out just like the photo, delicious, light and so easy to throw together. I am going to make a strawberry and blueberry versions. Nice to have a cake all the family love.

I made this for a charity cake sale and everyone said how delicious it was. I'm not a big fan of almond flavour but even I enjoyed it!
