Ingredients

  • 110 g butter or margarine
  • 110 g caster sugar
  • 110 g self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 500 g pack of frozen mixed berries
  • a sprinkle of icing sugar to serve, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  • Pour the frozen mixed berries into a ceramic dish. I used a small rectangular dish.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together, then add the eggs one by one, then fold in the flour.
  • Finally, stir in the vanilla extract and baking powder and mix gently.
  • Pour the cake batter on top of the mixed berries and spread around with a spoon.
  • Put it in the oven and bake for approx 40 to 45 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool and serve either warm or cold. Sprinkle with icing sugar before serving if desired.

Notes

If you make this in a large shallow dish the cooking time will be less than if you use a deeper dish. In a wider shallow dish test after 25-30 minutes. In a deeper dish, check from 30 minutes but it will probably take around 40-45 minutes.
Delicious served with custard!
