Method

25 min
 

1 Preheat oven to 180 °C.

2 Lightly grease three 20-cm cake pans and line the bottoms with baking paper.

3 In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg whites, whole egg, 50 ml milk and vanilla. Set aside.

4  In another bowl, using a wooden spoon, combine the dry ingredients with the cold butter one cube at a time, until a crumbly texture forms. Add 200 ml milk and mix for 5 minutes. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl to incorporate everything.

5 Add the egg mixture bit by bit to the butter mixture, while stirring, until everything is well incorporated.

6 Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the centre of each cake comes out with a few crumbs.

 FILLING

1 To assemble, whip the cream and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Spread half of the cream on one cake but not all the way towards the edges.

2  Top with another cake and spread cream mixture but not all the way towards the edges. Top with the final cake.

 ICING

1 Beat the butter, adding icing sugar until light and fluffy.

2 Ice the entire cake.

GLAZE

1 Put the raspberries in a bowl and mash with a fork.

2 Scoop the purée into a fine sieve and press through with the back of a spoon.

3 Discard the seeds.

4 Pour the mixture into the melted chocolate and mix until smooth.

5 Pour over the cake and gently spread it towards the edges.

6 Allow the glaze to settle and then enjoy.
