  1. Heat oven to 160c/fan 140c/gas 4. roll out the pastry a little more on a floured surface and use to line a 30 x 20cm tin, or a Swiss roll tin. Line with greaseproof paper, fill with baking beans and cook for 10 mins. Take out the beans and paper, then return to the oven for a further 5 mins.

  2. Whisk together the mascarpone, sugar, almonds and eggs until well blended. Fold in the raspberries and chocolate, then pour into the tin. Bake for 20-25 mins until just set and lightly golden. Turn off the oven, open the door and leave the tray bake to cool gradually. For the best results, chill for at least 1 hr before slicing.

The consistancy was ok, but I thought it lacked flavour. Could have been a bit sweeter too.

27th July 2018 Delicious! Took a little longer than 25 minutes, just kept adding 3 -4 mins at a time until it looked set and browned. I did make all butter pastry with no added sugar as thought it would make it too sweet with the white chocolate. A big hit with the family so would make it again.

made for Easter lunch - everybody loved it. Great flavours and not overly sweet

I had a nightmare making this, the recipe sounds straight forward and I had read all the reviews. I gave my traybake 50 mins in the oven despite it saying 20-25. Even after this time, it wasn't nearly set. Many comments said to leave it overnight too chill which I did and still it was mush in the morning, I couldn't even cut into the pastry without it crumbling into mush. I left it for the rest of the day to set but still stodgy and little taste when tired. Unfortunately, I won't be making this again.

Made this today, it turned out great. I cooked it a bit longer than is said in the recipe, it is best to check after 25 mins and maybe give it about 5/6 minutes more, however as long as you let it cool for about an hour it turns out great.

It takes a long time to set both in the oven and out, but tastes really good

I don't know if I did anything wrong but the texture of mine was horrible. The 2 flavours normally work incredibly well together but nothing seemed to be good about the finished product.

Brilliant recipe, I have made this loads of times and always turns out perfect, delicious and yummy. Sometimes I use coconut instead of almonds, and use any berries available. Pastry base is ideal.

I made this for a family bbq and it went down a treat with lots of people asking for the recipe. I actually made a cheesecake base instead of using pastry and it worked really well, I would definitely make this again.

It was nice, and would be easy if you could get the ready pastry. My solution (doing my own shortbread) did not really make a nice crips base. I think it needs some more sour in it, and I am not sure whether it should be some lemon (fresh grated peel or sth??). Almond was OK. Perhaps the mascarpone is too creamy and therefore a bit overwhelming?

Can you use a cheesecake bake instead of the pastry? Has anyone tried it?

I've made this once before but after reading some of the comments on this I made some minor changes. I used 400g rather than 500g of mascarpone - the pastry base was still quite full of the mixture. I used 150g of white chocolate rather than 100g, however had I bought any more I would have used 25-50g more as there still wasn't many chunks. The amount of raspberries is good however don't be afraid to put even more in. When cooking it took 50 mins at 140c fan to make the top golden. It bulged up in the oven but flattened out once I turned it off. I let it rest in the oven for 30 minutes, and then 60 minutes outside the oven. You could probably eat it then but I believe it tastes better chilled so I left it covered in the fridge overnight. Other ways to spice this up would be to use a cheesecake breadcrumb base or different fruit/chocolate combinations like strawberry and milk chocolate. Overall I believe this is a nice afternoon treat which is very easy to make but takes a bit of time to cook and cool. The flavours work great together, but might be slightly dull for some.
