Ole' Fashioned Raspberry Cake. An incredibly easy cake to make and so delicious. Serve with some ice cream or simply on its own with a nice cup of tea!

Adelenne has made a wonderful Ole' Fashioned Raspberry Cake, and it is so delicious and moist she just had to come and share it on Lovefoodies for you all to enjoy!
It's VERY easy to make and the results are very pleasing.
This cake is a twist on a very old recipe for Bakewell Tart, which is a famous little treat found in England. It's also a twist on the well known Frangipane too! The differences are that this cake doesn't have a pastry case, and there's no jam used. The cake is made with the lovely addition of ground almonds which add an extra sweetness, moisture and texture to the cake, and of course, the raspberries make a nice contrast of sharpness against the sweetness, and add a little extra juiciness in every bite. So this is an easy recipe and is not dry at all. (We hate dry cakes at Lovefoodies!) So give it a go!.
