Raspberry-Topped Almond Cake

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by echo echo

A sweet, offbeat combination of flavors for dessert. Add sugar to raspberries or not, however you prefer. You can also add a teaspoonful of orange or raspberry-flavored liqueur to the raspberries if you like.

Wonderful cake. Easy; great taste. I think it tastes even better on Day 2. It got an unsolicited compliment from DH; not a usual occurrence. Since I can't eat seeds, I just bought some seedless black raspbery jam, nuked it in the microwave for about 30 seconds until it melted and then spooned some of it on top. Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm.
