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.

YUM YUM YUM...lovely and moist. .....good keeping qualities. I made this "on the spur of the moment", so didn't have all the ingredients to hand........ added small blobs of seedless raspberry jam instead of the fresh raspberries, and substituted a couple of table spoons of the ground almonds with dry semolina and almond essence...(handy thrift tip!) I doubled the recipe, used the same sized tin, covered with greaseproof paper to stop burning on top, the cake baked evenly and well. My son & I have decided to bake one for Christmas this year...adding small balls of marzipan.......mmmmm can't wait!

this cake is absolutely fantastic, the sky-high ratings are well deserved! i made it for a barbecue at some friends' place and, since i wasn't sure whether everyone liked raspberries, i decided to play safe and use 200g glace cherries instead (rinsed well, halved and coated in flour to prevent them sinking). the result was delicious, an absolute hit - i got so many praises i almost felt embarrassed :) i mixed it by hand and it was dead easy to make. i mixed butter and sugar first until creamy, then added vanilla extract and eggs and finally folded in flour and ground almonds. will definitely make again and again.

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.
