  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've made this cake several times now and it always turns out great. Made with both raspberries and blueberries. The only change I make is that is I gently stir the fruit into the mixture and then spoon into my tin as I find it easier.

Made this cake yesterday afternoon and it was eaten in less than 24 hours. Didn't have any raspberries so used blueberries that needed eating up. It was lovely and moist and went down well with a cup of tea. Kids had it with custard still warm. Will definately make again.

This cake is really easy, super moist and overall scrummy. Only fault was the raspberry seeds but I guess that's unavoidable. Might try this with cherries next time.

This only lasted 2 days and there's only two of us!

Dangerous! This cake only lasted 2 days and there is only two of us. I only had 90g of ground almonds so made up the rest of the weight with more flour, I only had tinned cherries so used them instead. I will be making this again no doubt, but maybe when I'm not on a diet! Lol 2 days and there is only two of us.

Change nothing. I followed the recipe to the letter and came out perfect. Cakes that have almond meal are meant to be a bit dense so no reason to try to fluff it up. If you are short of rasberries you can try tinned cherries or any frozen red berry. The last 4 months i changed roles in life, i am a stay home mom that bakes cakes. I have tried dozens of recipes by now. On the Christmas dinner i was running out of time and decided to do something quick and chose this recipe. And i got the doubious comment that from all the weird fancy cakes they had tried so far this one was by far the best and i should just stick to this one. Well maybe that last chilli and agave syrup cake attempt is making my conservative audience weary. Anyway, this is a recipe to be printed out and kept in your cook book.

Fantastic cake/dessert. Used almond extract as others suggested and also added some Amaretto to the fruit - very almondy!

I have made this around 6 times, just so easy and delicious!

I would definitely recommend this. Its so easy to make. As suggested by other people I reduced the flour a little but kept everything the same. I thoroughly mixed the sugar and butter first, then the eggs, followed by the flour and the rest of the ingredients. The mixture seemed really thick and I thought I'd done something wrong but it was absolutely fine when I baked it. It was extremely tasty and will try and make this same cake but with blueberries instead. Really happy with the outcome :)

Very tasty cake - perfect if you are looking for a light cake to have with tea or lunch.
