  • 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.

Completely gorgeous cake, came out looking exactly like in the picture! Really easy to make too. We ate it still a bit warm, agree it would make a lovely pudding with some cream or custard.

I made this with a tub of raspberries I needed to use up quickly. It was such a lovely moist cake and so easy to make. I will definitely make it again. It makes a nice pudding too, warmed up and served with ice cream. Yum.

Such an easy cake to 'throw' together. Moist and very tasty. Went down a treat with the whole family. Even my son who never tries anything different had a try of this cake.

This cake is fab and so so easy to make - the longest part was lining the cake tin. The cake was whole in the morning - by the evening there was less than half of it left - and there is only 2 of us in the house!!! My partner loved it. It's so moist and the rasberries just add a bit of tartness. Can't wait to make another one.

Went to a fruit farm and picked some raspberries and then seen this recipe in my magazine. Made the cake hoping my children would eat and enjoy the fruit, they didn't but I did! Will make again.
