Raspberry and Almond Cake

Shona’s last offering before heading overseas to start the Northern Branch of Cake Club in Scotland was a fine raspberry and almond cake. This gluten free beast looks healthy if you half close your eyes and glance over your shoulder at it, but to our great relief tasted every bit as unhealthy as a double chocolate brownie, only with more fruit. It’s a treasure, just like Shona.
