Recipe Notes

  • I recommend using this 2lb Loaf Tin!
  • I use these Freeze-Dried Raspberries!
  • Use a cake skewer to see if it’s done – it should come out clean.
  • You can store this in the fridge due to the fresh fruit in the sponge and on top, but if its a really cold day I would keep it outside the fridge as it could dry out.
  • If you struggle with chocolate in buttercream, add 1-2tbsp of whole milk to smooth it out, but only do this IF it has split.
  • Sometimes the raspberries can sink… and it’s not the end of the world. It happens. You can try coating them in a couple tablespoons of flour, if you wish.
  • Loaf cakes can sometimes take slightly longer to bake in some ovens (if the oven temp is off) as they act similarly to bundt cakes!
  • If you find your cake is a little greasy, it’s most like the chocolate that’s melted and started to react during baking – don’t worry, you can just pat it off – it won’t affect the cake at all, just the outside of it can feel a little greasy.
