Lemon & Raspberries really do sit together in perfect taste heaven. Subtly joined together in a moist, more-ish sponge.
The Lemon brings a gentle zesty perfect aroma and taste to the sponge, whilst the characteristic sweet and fruity raspberries not only dollop a bright pink hue throughout the sponge they marry beautifully with the taste of lemon. Each bite offers a hint of lemon followed by a fruity burst of raspberry all surrounded by the most wonderful soft sponge.
The sponge is formed from a base of ground almonds and polenta, both brought together with a light olive oil and egg.
I simply cannot believe how stupendously lovely this tray bake is; everyone who digs into a chunk cannot believe its Gluten and Dairy free. I always wonder what experience people have had to say that, but for me the fact its Dairy and Gluten free is just a bonus.
Partners well with a pot of English Breakfast Tea.
