So i stumbled upon this recipe in my book Biscuits, Baking & Cakes and just had to try it! It was a triple layer cake with chocolate buttercream AND berries!!!!! What could be better? The only thing was, was that the cake in matter wasn’t cake it was meringue. I didn’t have most of the ingredients so i decided to settle with cake instead of the meringue. But if you wan’t to do it with meringue simply follow my meringue recipe from last week!
240g butter, softened
240g self raising flour
For the topping/filling
75g butter, softened
420g icing sugar
50g cocoa powder
3-4 tbsp milk
450g mixed summer berries
First add your butter and sugar into a bowl and mix until light and creamy.
Now add both your eggs and your flour, mixing or whisking until thick and creamy.
Turn the oven on to Gas mark 6/ 200oc/ 400of. Grease your cake tins and then pour 1/3 into each tin. If you only have 2 tins then just keep the other 1/3 then use one of the tins after it has cooked.
When all 3 are done (and AFTER you have licked out the bowl 😉 ) it will be time to make the yuuuuumy filling!
Beat the butter, cocoa powder and icing sugar together, adding the milk as you go.
When this is made, spread it over your bottom layer. Sprinkle a 1/3 of your summer fruits generously on top. Do this for the next for your other layers as well, topping the top off with sprinkled icing sugar!
Enjoy this truly spectacularly, yummy cake!!
