℺ berry picking

our veg patch isn't thriving too well with
the inclement UK weather
but the strawberries and raspberries 
are loving it!
after a friend tweeted that she was making
a cherry almond clafoutis, I was inspired to
make a strawberry raspberry cake along
a similar line

red red berry cake

you will need ....
200g plain flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
100g softened unsalted butter
200g sugar
1 egg
120ml milk
a teaspoon of vanilla extract
demerara for sprinkling
some fresh strawberries or raspberries
or both!
preheat the oven to 180c/ gas 4
line and grease an 8" springform tin
sift all the dry ingredients into a large bowl

in another bowl cream together the butter and sugar
until light and fluffy
add the egg and mix well
stir in the milk and vanilla extract
add the wet ingredients to the dry
mixing well but gently
pour into the prepared tin
press in the strawberries and raspberries
then sprinkle lightly with demerara

bake for 1 hour or until golden and cooked through
cool on a wire rack 
delicious with a scoop of vanilla icecream I reckon!
