My sister gave me this recipe to try. My sister. Genius.
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup of castor sugar
- 2 cups of fresh or frozen rasberries
- 2 cups of Almond Meal
- icing sugar (powdered sugar), passionfruit & rasberries to top it off!
- Yes, that is all
Pre-heat your oven to 160 C
Crack 6 eggs into a large bowl, add the castor sugar. With an electric mixer, quickly whisk the eggs and sugar until the mixture has a whitish color, and the texture stops changing. It should be stiff but still moist (as pictured above) Mash up all of your rasberries in a bowl making sure to leave some as the garnish, but use 2 cups in your mixture. Fold through the almond meal and rasberries, but, 1/4 cup of each at a time, not to overwhelm the sensitive egg mixture. Make sure to fold not mix, and make sure all ingredients folded through well. Place your mixture in a cake tin that has baking paper and also has been sprayed or greased with butter. Spoon Cake mix into tin and place into the pre-heated oven to bake. Bake for 1 hour. I turned my oven down to 100 C at the 30 mins mark, and let it the cake bake for an extra 10 mins after the 1 hour. Depending on your oven. What to watch out for is that the outside doesn t burn and the inside isn t soft and collapses. Cooking things at a lower temperature prevents this if you start to see signs of this happening. Keep an eye on your cake. Once baked, allow to sit to cool off. Sift powdered sugar on top of the cake, add fresh rasberries and passionfruit. My garden is overflowing with passionfruit right now, so these are fresh out of the garden! :) This cake is a real treat, healthy, light, delicious ect ect ect, I wish I had pics of the facial expression of papa when he was eating it. Priceless.
