A simple, lovely cake perfect for afternoon tea.


  • 140g butter, softened and cubed 

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 -1 cup raw brown sugar

  • 1 cup almond meal

  • 1 cup self-raising flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds

  • 80ml sparkling water

  • 200g raspberries

  • 1/2 cup almond flakes

  • 2 tbsp icing sugar, for decorating


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 180C. Butter and flour a spring-form cake tin and line the bottom with parchment paper.

  • 2.

    Add butter, eggs, sugar, almond meal, flour and baking powder into a food processor. Pulse until well combined and the mixture is smooth. Add in chopped almonds and SodaStream sparkling water. Pulse until just combined. The batter should come out very thick.

  • 3.

    Transfer half of the batter into the prepared baking form and scatter over with raspberries. Top with the remaining batter and sprinkle with almond flakes. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until golden brown and until a skewer comes out clean.

    Leave in the spring-form cake tin to cool for 15 minutes before removing. Dust with icing sugar. Serve warm or at room temperature and enjoy!
