For The Chocolate Sponge:

3 large Eggs

1 tbsp Milk

175 g Butter or baking spread

175 g Caster sugar

150 g Self raising flour

For the chocolate buttercream:

50 g Cocoa powder

1 ½ tbsp Milk

200 g Butter or baking spread

350 g Icing sugar

For decoration & filling:

Dark chocolate curls/shavings

Half a jar of Raspberry jam

Fresh raspberries


For the Cake:

Preheat the oven to 160°C Fan/180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4 and grease and line two 8-inch cake pans.

Make both sponges in separate dishes at the same time.

Combine the butter and caster sugar for each sponge, ideally mix with an electric mixer.

For the pink sponge: Whisk well together the eggs and vanilla essence. Then mix in the self-rising flour, followed by the pink food coloring until you achieve the desired tint.

For the chocolate sponge: Whisk well together the eggs and milk. Mix in the self-rising flour, cocoa powder, and milk.

Beat until you have two bowls of well mixed cake batters.

Pour alternate spoonfuls of batter into the 2 cake tins, place each spoonful on top of the one before it. Repeat until all of the batter has been utilized. While the batter will spread out and fill the tin as you pour it in, you can give it a gentle shake to help it along.

Bake for 30 minutes in the oven, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely in the tins or on cooling racks.

For the Chocolate Buttercream:

Combine the butter, cocoa powder, and icing sugar to make the chocolate buttercream. When it begins to come together, add the milk and continue to mix until smooth. This is recommended to be done with an electric hand whisk, but you may alternatively mix it by hand using a spoon.

To finish the Cake:

If the cakes have a domed top, use a cake leveler to level them out.

Place one of the sponges on your cake stand and use a piping bag fitted with a round nozzle to pipe a circle of buttercream blobs around the perimeter, then fill the center with raspberry jam. If you like, you can just fill the middle with raspberry jam.

Place the second sponge on top and cover with chocolate buttercream. Around the border, pipe another circle of chocolate buttercream blobs and top with fresh raspberries. Shave dark chocolate into the center with a vegetable peeler, or you can use store-bought chocolate curls or sprinkles.


In an airtight container, this cake can be kept in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. If you want to freeze this cake, cover it unfrosted in plastic wrap and aluminum foil and store it in the freezer, it should last for up to 3 months. Remove when using, and let the cake defrost overnight. Enjoy!
