Cooking time: 35 minutes

What You Need:

For The Cake:

230g unsalted butter, softened

65g agave syrup

100g unrefined golden caster sugar

2 eggs and 2 egg yolks, at room temperature

1 tsp vanilla extract

How To Make A Raspberry And Coconut Layer Cake:

What You Do:

1. Firstly, preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan. Line the base and sides of three 20cm sandwich cake tins with baking paper.

2. In a large bowl beat the butter until pale, soft and creamy. Whisk in the agave syrup then the golden caster sugar.

Beat in the eggs and yolks one by one, then the vanilla extract and buttermilk. If the mixture looks like its curdling at any point, add a few spoons of flour and continue whisking.

3. Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into the mixture and gently fold in. Fold in the raspberries then divide between the cake tins.

Gently spread to the edges and bake straight away for 30-35 minutes or until it springs back when gently pressed in the centre. Once cooked, cool in the tins for a few minutes then turn out on to a wire rack to cool completely.

4. While cooling make the frosting. Beat together the butter and coconut oil then beat in all of the other ingredients to make a firm frosting. Divide the mixture into thirds.

Put the bottom layer on your serving plate or cake stand and spread one-third of the frosting over it.

Gently place the next layer on top and repeat until you have all three layers with a layer of frosting on top. Decorate the top with coconut shavings and fresh raspberries.

Last but not least, enjoy.
