    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 25 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15-20 minutes + cooling
    • Total time: 40-45 minutes

    Serves: 8

    Ingredients

    100g butter, at room temperature, plus extra for greasing
    300g Billington’s Golden Caster Sugar
    4 medium Waitrose British Blacktail Eggs, separated
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    2 tbsp milk
    150g self-raising flour
    ½ tsp table salt
    50g flaked almonds
    300ml whipping cream
    200g fresh raspberries
    Icing sugar, for dusting 

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Butter and base line 2 x 20-22cm non-stick, cake tins. Using an electric whisk, beat the butter and 100g of the sugar together in a bowl until pale and creamy, then whisk in the egg yolks, vanilla and milk. Sift over the flour and gently fold in. Divide equally between the prepared tins.

    2. Using clean beaters, whisk the egg whites in a bowl until they form soft peaks. Gradually beat in the salt and remaining 200g sugar to make a glossy meringue. Spread over the sponge mixture then scatter over the flaked almonds. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and set. Leave to cool in the tins.

    3. When ready to assemble, remove the cakes from the tins. In a bowl, whisk the cream to form soft peaks. Spoon over one of the cakes and scatter over the raspberries. Top with the second cake and dust lightly with icing sugar before slicing and serving.
