A delectable raspberry almond crumble cake that is layer upon layer of flavour. Baked with almond flour and at only 3.5g net carbs a slice it is a perfect low carb afternoon treat.
Raspberry and almond makes a great flavour combination. Back in the UK there is a cake slice with almonds and raspberry that we both adore. So, this is my version of this but in low carb cake form.
Ideally, the topping on this raspberry almond crumble cake should have almond slithers on it. Sadly, none were available in the shops here so I attempted to carefully slice an almond. And that's why my photos show chopped almonds and not slithers!
