Almond Cake with Fresh Fruit
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter and line a 9-inch cake pan with parchment paper. Chop almonds in food processor. Add the sugar and eggs and process 1-minute. Add the butter and salt and process 1 minute more.
Spread the mixture in the prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack in pan. When cool, carefully unmold.
Melt raspberry preserves and spread over cake. Slice fruit and arrange over cake. Combine apricot preserves and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Heat until melted. Strain and drizzle over fruit.
