  • 2 tbsp flaked almond

  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.

Love this recipe fairly easy as said don't be deterred by batter thickness. Will make again have tried Raspberry and Blackberries

This was very tasty, and went down very well indeed with my friends. Don't be deterred by the thickness of the batter - it's supposed to be like that. Will certainly be making again.

I've made this cake several times now and it never disappoints. I've also made it with blueberries when I couldn't find raspberries in the supermarket. It's good with custard too.

This wasn't great for me unfortunately... The upper half of the cake ended up over-done and the bottom was soggy from the moisture in the raspberries.

One of the easiest cakes I've made and absolutely gorgeous. I'm sure it would work well with other fruits, am hoping to try it with plums.

This was so easy to make and delicious. I threw some oats into the mixture to make it more flapjack-like in flavour and also sprinkled oats on top instead of flaked almonds and it was delicious. I also added a thin layer of raspberry jam before the raspberries to make it more like a bakewell
