While the pastry is baking, thinly roll out the marzipan on a surface dusted with icing sugar and cut out a 23cm circle

Make a sponge mixture by creaming the butter and sugar together in a food processor, then add the eggs one at a time, the ground almonds and baking powder; stir in the raisins

Lay the circle of marzipan inside the pastry case, spread the raspberry jam over the marzipan then spoon the sponge mixture on top; scatter over the flaked almonds and return to the oven for 25-30 minutes; leave to cool, dust with icing sugar and serve
