Raspberry & Apple Cake | Hudson Home

Looks like a weekend in the garden is set for us all!

We plan on a classic BBQ and to follow Nic’s favourite desert – Raspberry & Almond Tart. This recipe is a great way of using up the soft fruits of summer when they are a little past their best, so raspberries can be swapped for the fruit of your choice!!

Serve cold as cake or warm as a desert with ice cream, cream or best of all clotted cream.

  • 9. Finally, roughly amalgamate topped ingredients and sprinkle over the top of the cake
  • 10. Bake in the centre of the oven for 50-60 minutes until a skewer comes out clean and cake has a lovely golden, toasted colour.

  • TIP: You may like to scatter the flaked almonds over it about 10 mins before the baking to enhance the ‘toastiness’
