How To Make A Berry Boozy Chocolate Cake:


½ jar of Pinkster Boozy Berries, chopped into thirds.

500ml milk

350g caster sugar

250g self-raising flour

125g butter

85g cocoa powder

2 eggs

500g icing sugar

250g butter

100g cocoa powder

75ml milk

A punnet of fresh raspberries for decoration

A Berry Boozy Chocolate Cake Method:

1. Firstly, preheat the oven to 180C, then grease and line two 25cm sandwich tins.

2. Mix the butter, sugar and eggs together until they reach a frothy, creamy consistency.

3. Fold in half the flour then add half the milk until the mixture is smooth.

4. Fold the rest of the flour into the mix add the cocoa powder and stir until it’s all incorporated.

5. Pour in the rest of the milk and give it another stir.

6. Pour the mix into the sandwich tins and bake for around 25 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the centre of the cake to test its readiness – it should come out clean.

7. Now it’s time for the icing. Tip the butter into a clean mixing bowl and beat with the milk until they become soft and malleable.

8. Gradually start adding the icing sugar, mixing until it’s all incorporated. Stir in the cocoa powder and beat until smooth.

9. Take a third of the chocolate frosting mix and spread it over the top of one of your cakes. Sprinkle with the chopped Boozy Berries, along with plenty of chopped raspberries for added fruitiness then sit the other cake on top.

10. Last but not least, pipe or spread the rest of the chocolate frosting mix over the entire cake.
