I have been a little bit sidetracked by beauty blogging lately so it has been a long time since I blogged a foodie recipe. Today’s recipe is a yummy crunchy amaretti and raspberry cake. Back in May I picked up this recipe on one of those free recipe cards that Waitrose have but never got around to making it. Then one day on a job I was given a slice of the most yummy cake and when I asked for the recipe it just happened to be the one I picked up from Waitrose. I then obviously believed it was fate that I must finally cook the cake. I also have a new set of weighing scales and gorgeous personalised mixing spoon which says Megan’s Signature Bake on the spoon letting me pretend I am on the Great British Bake Off.

1. Preheat your oven to 160° and grease your baking tin (approx 20cm).
2. Mix the butter, sugar, eggs, flour and ground almonds together.
I used my Kitchen Aid but you can use your own strength with a wooden spoon to mix all of the ingredients.
3. Fold in the chocolate and raspberries.
4. Fold in 3/4 of the amaretti biscuits.
5. Pour all the mixed ingredients into the cake tin.
6. Sprinkle the remaining amaretti on top of the cake.
7. Bake for 60 minutes.
8. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before taking it out of its tin.
