Raspberry Bakewell Cake 2

Recipes in Mind is a collection of recipes compiled and baked by The Orangery Tea Room at Ketteringham Hall, near Norwich. Recipes were submitted by members of the public, family and friends who were also asked to give a quote about how baking had helped them during the first lockdown. 

All proceeds from the book are going to Norfolk and Waveney Mind. It costs £19.95. See the tearoom website for details.

This super cake recipe is from Lisa Bellamy who says: ‘I’ve really enjoyed baking with my almost four year old little boy Tom during this time. I used to bake a lot so it was nice to have the time to do this again.’

Serves Two


140g of ground almonds
140g of butter, softened
140g of golden caster sugar
140g of self raising flour
2 eggs 

1tsp of vanilla extract
250g of raspberries
1tbsp of flaked almonds
Icing sugar, to serve

Heat the oven to 180°C.

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.

Spread half the mixture 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 the flaked almonds and bake for 50 minutes until golden.

Cool, remove from the tin and dust with icing sugar to serve.
