This cake was the dessert for our Colourful dinner. The mix (pictured) was a little more colourful than the final product but it was still tasty!


  • 125g softened butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (275g) caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 3/4 cup self raising flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 50g frozen raspberries
  • pink food colouring
  • 1tbsp cocoa
  • 50g choc chips
  • 25g toasted almonds (I used toasted macadamias)


  1. Mix all ingredients on low speed and then on medium for 1-2 mins until pale in colour.
  2. Split evenly between 3 bowls (you don’t have to weigh the bowls/mixture as you are not making 3 separate layers)
  3. Bowl 1 – add frozen raspberries and a few drops of pink food colouring. (The pink colour ‘fades’ as it cooks so you can be fairly generous). Bowl 2 – add cocoa and choc chips. Bowl 3 – add toasted nuts.
  4. Drop heaped tablespoons of alternating mixture into a greased and lined 20cm deep round tin.
  5. Cook 1hr 10min in 160C oven (140C if fan forced).
