A classic English shortcrust pastry, adapted from taste, with a hidden layer of raspberry jam, on top of which is a almond-flavoured cake and a topping of flaked almonds. It freezes well and makes a wonderful treat for afternoon tea.




PastryAlmond Cake

  • 180 g Butter, chilled and diced
  • 2 tbsp Raw brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla powder
  • 1 Large Egg yolk
  • 280 g White spelt flour
  • 1 tbsp Iced water

  • 150 g butter, softened
  • 100 g Raw brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla powder
  • 3 Eggs
  • 150 g Almond meal
  • 50 g White spelt flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 150 g Raspberry jam
  • 40 g Flaked almonds

  1. Make Sweet Shortcrust Pastry: Place flour, sugar, vanilla powder and butter in a food processor. Process until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add yolk and iced water. Process until pastry just comes together, adding extra water if necessary. Turn out pastry onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth. Shape into a disc. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Grease and line a 28cm square springform pan. Press the pastry into the bottom of the prepared pan. Prick the base with a fork and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Line pastry case with baking paper. Fill with pie weights or uncooked beans and blind-bake for 10 minutes. Remove the beans and paper. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until base is light golden. Set aside to cool slightly. Spread the pastry case with raspberry jam, leaving a 1cm gap around the edge. Reduce oven temperature to 160C/320F.
  4. Cream butter, raw sugar and vanilla powder until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in almond meal, spelt flour and baking powder. Spread the filling over the jam and sprinkle with flaked almonds.
  5. Bake for about 40 minutes until nicely golden brown and the filling is just firm to the touch. Stand in pan to cool completely. Cut into slices and serve.
