Sweet Sunday: Raspberry Almond Cake

Sunday, September 14, 2014

raspberry-almond-cake-recipIve been wanting to include more recipes on the blog for a long time, Ive even had a few sweet recipes photographed and saved on my laptop for a while now. So Im now hoping to every Sunday (or every other Sunday?) share a recipe either under the heading Sweet Sunday or Savoury Sunday.

So to start with here is a very simple and tasty recipe for an almond and raspberry cake otherwise known as a Bakewell Cake.

lifestyle-fashion-blogYou will need:
140g ground almonds
140g butter
140g golden caster sugar
140g self raising flour
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
250g raspberries
icing sugar to dust over at the end.
step-by-step-cake-recipePreheat oven to 180 degrees.
Grease a 20cm loose bottom cake tin, and mix with a hand whisk the almonds, sugar, butter, flour, eggs and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and evenly mixed.

cooking-baking-food-blogSpread half the mix over the cake tin and smooth the top. Scatter over the raspberries then dollop on the rest of the mix and smooth down with a spoon.

easy-cake-recipeBake in the oven for 50 mins, my oven temp can be temperamental so I like to rotate my cake a few times during baking. Cool on a cooling rack, dust with icing sugar and devour! :)
So there you have it, pretty easy but oh so tasty! Hope you guys like this idea of a little feature on my blog. Let me know if there are any recipes you would like me to tackle or share! xx
