  All purpose flour 1 3⁄4 Cup (28 tbs), sifted
  Sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Unsweetened cocoa 2 Teaspoon
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Ground cinnamon 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground cloves 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Butter/Margarine 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), softened (1 Stick)

1. Sift flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and cloves into a medium-size bowl. Cut in butter or margarine with a pastry blender.
2. Stir in egg, ground almonds, kirsch, lemon rind and juice until mixture is well blended. Chill 1 hour, or until dough gets firmer.
3. Cut the dough in half and press one half to fit the bottom of a 10-inch greased and floured spring-form pan. Spread 1/2 cup jam over dough.
4. Sprinkle your work surface lightly with flour and roll remaining dough into finger-thick strips. Arrange strips, lattice-fashion, over preserves.
5. Bake in moderate oven (350°) 50 minutes, or until pastry is firm. Cool in pan on wire rack. Remove cake from pan. Fill lattices with additional raspberry jam, if you wish. Sprinkle with 10X sugar.
