For the cake
For the chocolate cream
To make the cake, preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5.
Beat the butter and sugar in a mixer or large bowl. Add the eggs slowly and then the hazelnut crumb, flour and baking powder and mix. Toss the raspberries in the sumac and then scatter over the bottom of a 20cm/8in springform round cake tin. Tip the cake mixture over the top and scatter over the chocolate and chopped hazelnuts. Bake for 1–1½ hours. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
To make the chocolate cream, beat the almond butter with the butter and sugar until well mixed. Stir in the cocoa powder and enough milk to loosen. Dust with the sumac.
Slice the cake and serve with the raspberries and the chocolate cream.
