  • 4 medium free range eggs
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 2 x 10g tubes Dr Oetker Gel Food Colour, Bright Red

  • 150g butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g light brown soft sugar
  • 1 tbsp freeze-fried raspberries

  • Preheat the oven to 170°C/Fan 150°C/Gas 3. Grease and base line an 18cm round cake tin.
  • Whisk the butter, sugar and vanilla extract until pale and fluffy. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, until combined (add a little of the flour if it looks curdled). Mix in the red food colour. Fold in the flour and cocoa.
  • Spoon into the cake tin and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the cake. Allow to cool.
  • To make the filling, whisk the butter, vanilla extract and sugar until pale and fluffy
  • Cut the cake into 3 even-sized horizontal rounds. Spread ⅓ of the butter icing over 1 slice of cake, and then lay another slice on top. Spread this with another ⅓ of the icing and top with final slice. Spread with the remaining icing and sprinkle over the dried raspberries.
