This is an almond based slice that is accentuated by a layer of raspberry jam. Great for morning tea with tea or coffee.
Really delicious, would double up as a 'rainy-day pudding', served warm with custard, or a yummy afternoon snack with a cup of tea! This recipe is a real find, thanks so much for sharing. All the family loved it. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would...... Made this again: just as good. It only took about 20 minutes to cook the topping though. I'd recommend keeping an eye on it after that amount of time: be such a shame to burn it. - 02 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Made this at work in our cafe, went down a storm, is now a regular addition to our cake display! Lovely. - 19 May 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
This was my first ever attempt at a bakewell and I am delighted - this was fab! I only had homemade peach jam so I tried that. Only had 200g ground almonds and no flaked ones so I added 50g of plain flour to the almonds to see if that worked. The almond extract was just right for that almondy taste, the texture was moist and even the jam worked. Will try it again with the right amount of almonds and strawberry jam. Got 24 squares out of it. Many thanks for a fab recipe! - 05 Mar 2014 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
