Ingredients
  • 400g pack Genius Gluten Free Shortcrust Pastry
  • 150g Chosen by you Raspberry Jam
  • 125g Pure Dairy Free Sunflower Spread
  • 125g caster sugar
  • Few drops almond extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 125g ground almonds
  • 50g Self Raising Flour, plus extra for rolling
  • 50g flaked almonds
  • Icing sugar, to dust
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Knead the pastry lightly, shape into a ball and fatten slightly.

  • Remove the base from a 22cm loose-based flan tin and put on a lightly floured surface. Put the pastry in the middle, then roll it out to form a circle about 3cm larger than the tin base.

  • Carefully lower the base and pastry into the tin, using your fingers to fold the pastry up the sides. Spread the jam over the pastry base.

  • Beat the sunflower spread, sugar and almond extract together until creamy. Add the eggs, ground almonds and flour. Beat until evenly mixed.

  • Put spoonfuls of the mixture all over the jam. Spread into an even layer very gently (to avoid the jam mixing with the almond mixture). Sprinkle over the flaked almonds.

  • Bake for 35 minutes. Leave to cool on a rack. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
