BERRY CAKE: Correction I did not use yeast it should have been 1 tsp and 1/8 of a teaspoon of BAKING POWDER. SORRY.

I have made this cake twice now and it has turned out extremely well. I didn't have any wholemeal self-raising flour, I did have wholemeal plain flour so I added 1tsp +1/8tsp of dried yeast to the wholemeal Plain Flour. I also used frozen berries.

I made this cake today & it was absolutely delicious, the family finished the whole cake for dessert. I followed the recipe, using just raspberries. So good, the cake is really light & soft, & not too sweet as the filling has no sugar in it. ( I did find the baking paper had to be removed very carefully, as it sticks a little to the fruit, & also the cakes had to be carefully removed from the cooling rack too. But worth it!)
