Delicious raspberry and amaretti crunch cake
- STEP 1
Preheat the oven to fan 140C/conventional 160C/gas 3. Butter and base line a loose-bottomed 20cm round cake tin. Put the butter, caster sugar, eggs, flour and ground almonds into a large bowl. Beat using an electric hand whisk until all the ingredients are well blended.
- STEP 2
Spread half the cake mixture in the lined tin. Scatter over half of the amaretti biscuits then a third of the raspberries. Very lightly press into the cake mixture.
- STEP 3
Dollop dessertspoonfuls of the remaining cake mixture over the amaretti and raspberries and spread evenly. Scatter the remaining amaretti and half the remaining raspberries over the top. Bake for 55-60 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
- STEP 4
Cool for 15 minutes in the tin. Run a knife round the edge and turn out. It will keep in a covered container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
- STEP 5
To serve, remove from the fridge an hour before serving and lightly dust with icing sugar before bringing to the table. Serve with the remaining raspberries and a little single cream.
