Chocolate raspberry custard cake



1.Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 20cm x 20cm baking dish with baking paper.
2.Beat the egg yolks and sugar until pale and creamy. Add the melted butter and vanilla, then beat until combined. Fold in the sifted flour and cocoa. Slowly pour in the warmed milk and beat well.
3.Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form (see note), then fold into the batter, a third at a time. Repeat until all the egg whites are folded in. The batter is very sloppy at this stage.
4.Pour the batter into the baking dish and scatter over the berries. They will sink into the cake as it bakes.
5.Bake for around 1 hour or until the cake doesn’t wobble when given a gentle shake.
6.Cool and dust with the icing sugar, then serve with whipped cream.
  • Makes 1 20cm x 20cm cake – Even when aiming for stiff peaks, don’t overbeat the egg whites as they can split.
