Ingredients

250g plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

115g soft butter

255g castor sugar

zest of 1 large lemon, finely grated

2 large eggs

100g full-fat plain yoghurt (make your own with Frank Camorra's yoghurt recipe here)

25g ground almonds

200g fresh raspberries

1 tbsp white sugar

 

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a 23-centimetre loaf tin and line with baking paper.

2. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.

3. Cream the butter and castor sugar in a large mixing bowl for five minutes until pale and fluffy, then beat in the lemon zest. Beat in the eggs one at a time, adding a tablespoon of the sifted flour with the second egg. Alternatively fold in large spoonfuls of the remaining flour and the yoghurt until the mixture is smooth, then fold in the almonds.

4. Spoon one-third of the cake mixture into a loaf tin and scatter with one-third of the raspberries. Repeat twice, finishing with a layer of raspberries.

5. Bake for 45-50 minutes until the cake is nicely browned, then cover loosely with foil and bake for a further 20-25 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.

6. Remove the cake from the oven. Cool for five  minutes. Sprinkle with white sugar. Carefully remove the cake from the tin and put it on a wire rack to cool. Serve in thick slices.

    I adapted this recipe to use in my thermomix and it worked brilliantly. I also doubled the recipe and cooked for an extra 40 minutes. It is a delicious cake with the sweetness of sugar balanced with the sharpness of raspberries. Perfect any time a your sweet tooth needs a fix.

Wouldn't it be more pasta-esque if it were served hot? This just seems like a salad. Read more
