• 210 g Butterlicious
  • 210 g Fairtrade golden caster sugar by Sainsbury's
  • 2 tsp Taste the Difference Madagascan vanilla extract
  • 4 large free-range eggs, plus 3 extra separated whites
  • 160 g British self-raising flour by Sainsbury's
  • 1 tsp Dr Oetker baking powder
  • 60 g desiccated coconut
  • 3 tbsp British soured cream by Sainsbury's
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 150 g raspberries, washed
  • 175 g Fairtrade white caster sugar by Sainsbury's
  • edible silver lustre, to decorate


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Grease and line the bases of 2x20cm round cake tins. Put the Butterlicious, golden caster sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. Using an electric whisk, beat until light and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs, beating well after each addition.

  2. 2

    Sift in the flour and baking powder, then add the coconut, soured cream and lime zest. Use a metal spoon to fold everything in.

  3. 3

    Divide the mixture between the prepared tins and level the surfaces. Bake for 20-25 minutes until risen, golden and just firm to the touch. Cool for 5 minutes, then turn out on to a wire rack to cool completely.

  4. 4

    Make the frosting: put the white caster sugar, egg whites and 1 tablespoon of water into a large heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water – the bottom should not touch the water. Whisk using an electric hand-held whisk until thickened. Remove from the heat and keep whisking for 2-3 minutes until firm and glossy.

  5. 5

    Spread 3 tablespoons of frosting over the top of one cake, and put two-thirds of the raspberries on top of the frosting. Top with the other cake and cover with the remaining frosting. Decorate with the remaining berries and a sprinkling of silver lustre.
