Summer Cooking Recipe: Fresh Raspberry & Almond Cake
So I am sure this doesn't apply to everyone but I absolutely love cooking & baking. Not only do I find it really fun but I just find that it relaxes me, it really is a great hobby to take on board. So of course in Summer there are a lot of recipes that involve a lot of fruit which means.. colour! I adore food that is appealing and pretty to the eye, because not only does it seem more delicious it just catches peoples eye when a dish is full of vibrant colours. You know what they say.. the more colours in a meal the healthier it is. That saying may not apply to this recipe though but everyone deserves a treat from time to time. I came across this recipe recently in Sainsbury's and really wanted to try it out. Oh boy aren't I glad that I did. This cake is so yummy and so gorgeous to look at.
Serves 8, Prep 20 mins, Cooking 35 mins
Ingredients: 110g unsalted English butter by Sainsbury’s, softened, plus extra for greasing
And here is how my cake turned out! I was pretty proud if I am honest because I wouldn't call a 'cook'. Meaning I should practise more than I actually do. I think this cake would be perfect for a Summer garden party, BBQ, Birthday or any special occasion. Or perhaps like me if you just have a sweet tooth and fancied putting yourself up to the challenge. I actually found this cake really fun to make and it was relatively straight forward.
I genuinely thought this cake tasted delicious. The topping is so unique. Instead of just traditional sugar or butter icing it is a mix of double cream and melted white chocolate... HEAVEN! The sweet, refreshing raspberry's go perfectly with the white chocolate and the sponge comes out very fluffy and soft. A 10/10 Summer Recipe!
You can buy all these ingredients of course from Sainsbury's... Here is the link on there website if you are interested in making this cake: http://inspiration.sainsburys-live-well-for-less.co.uk/recipes/fresh-raspberry-almond-cake/
