Almond and Raspberry cake

In my lab we need to deal with the inconvenience of having to also provide breakfast for the audience whenever it’s one’s turn to give a talk. Of course this clashes frontally with the widespread habit of procrastinating: last minute presentation preparations are not completely compatible with cake producing… so that’s why this recipe is perfect, because it’s the one with the highest satisfaction to manual labour ratio ever. Plus it is so delicious and leaves the audience so satisfied that they go really easy on you 😉
