Ketchup and chips, gravy and mash, hummus and crisps… there really have been some iconic (and quite frankly irresistible) culinary couplings throughout the years. After trying this cake, however, you’ll never forget to invite your new favourite pair – raspberry and almond – to a dinner party again. Set to impress guests, sweet toothed-partners and hungry children alike, this is one for the repertoire that won’t go unnoticed.
Thanks to plant-based food blogger, Amy Lanza, for sharing her recipe for the tantalising treat that is her Raspberry and Almond Cake, inspired by the notoriously sumptuous ingredients in our iconic Skin Feast and Smoothing Cleanser.
