DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Spray bottom and sides of 9x9-inch square pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Cut firm margarine into 1/3 cup flour and 1/4 cup sugar using a pastry blender (or 2 knives) until crumbly.
  • Stir in almonds; set aside.
  • Beat 2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, softened butter, milk, baking powder, vanilla, and egg with an electric mixer on low about 30 seconds until blended.
  • Beat on medium about 2 minutes, scraping down the bowl occasionally.
  • Spread half the batter in the pan.
  • Sprinkle with half each of the almond paste, raspberries, and the "streusel" that you set aside.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter, almond paste, raspberries and streusel.
  • Bake about 50 minutes.
  • This is hard to test with a toothpick, because if you hit some almond paste you might think it isn't cooked yet--mine was perfect after 50 minutes.
