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!

This was originally published in 2013. I've tweaked the recipe and updated the photos.
I was wondering if making individual muffins (12+) to freeze would work with this recipe? Most of the time, I end up eating breakfast and lunch by myself.
That sounds like a great idea!
Hey! I made the cake and "Scattered the raspberries over the cream cheese" like the recipe says, and my raspberries came out just as i put them in, applied on top of the cream cheese mixture and underneath the crumble. Yours looks like the raspberry layer is melted, also it seems like a much bigger amount of raspberries in comparison to mine.
Hi! Do you think this could be done as cup cakes
Yes, they would be delicious I imagine!
this is totally delish 🙂 my son said best low carb Anything we have baked yet 🙂 thank you .....
Your son is wise and his mother is fabulous!
Great results! Hubby who has a sweet tooth loves it. I'd like to know if it can be frozen.
Yes, it could be frozen. Glad you enjoyed it!
In the ingredients it says "melted butter" but for the instructions it states "In a bowl, mix the erythritol and butter together until soft and blended" which to me sounds like the butter should be at room temperature. So do I melt or leave the butter soft? The first time I made it I used butter at room temperature and it worked and I'm going to make it again today so I figured I should ask what the correct way is.
It should be soft. I've made it with both though and it worked out fine each way.
made this cake but no mention of quantity needed for heavy cream
Hi Libby, It's two tablespoons. Thanks!
I guesses and put more than that in but my husband loved it all the same. Will certainly make it again and wondered if instead of jam might throw in defrosted raspberries which I've always got in the freezer.
ooh - love the idea of the defrosted raspberries - can't see why that won't work! Sounds yummy. I'll pop by for a piece later..ha ha!
you're welcome but rather a long way for you to come. We live in France!
Where does it say to use heavy cream?
That was in the original recipe. I've now tweaked it and removed the cream from the sponge.
I love almond and raspberry! :3
Oooh! Hope you enjoy this combination!
