What to make for a friend coming to tea? I bought some ground and flaked almonds last week so wanted to use them.
I love Bakewell tart, so searched for a recipe with similar flavours and found this one. Couldn't wait to try it as a cake.
It's from the BBC Good Food site
The recipe suggests you blend it in a food processor, but as mine is broken, I used an electric hand mixer and it worked fine. There's ground almonds in the recipe so it's quite a thick batter. You put a layer of the batter into the tin, spread the raspberries over, then spread the rest of the mixture on top.
It's mentioned in the recipe that it's better to use your fingers to spread the mixture on top of the fruit, and this is good advice, as it's impossible to spread with a spoon or spatula!
It has a lovely almond flavour and the fresh raspberries give another texture and aren't sweet. It does feel and taste like a Bakewell tart. My friend loved it, and took a large piece home!
