- 200g Caster sugar

- 200g Unsalted butter

- 225g Self raising flour

METHOD

- Grease and line a loaf tin and preheat your oven to 160 degrees (fan).

- Mix the sugar, butter, flour, eggs, vanilla, baking powder and lemon zest together until fully combined to form a smooth mixture.

- Divide the mixture into three.

- Pour one third of the mixture into the loaf tin and randomly place some of your summer fruits on top of the mixture.

- Cover the berries with another third of the cake mixture before covering with a few more berries.

- Pour over the final third of the mixture before placing in the oven for 50-60 minutes.

- Meanwhile create a coulis by placing berries and sugar into a saucepan on a medium heat.

- Once the berries begin to break down and the mixture begins to simmer, remove from the heat.

- Blend the coulis before straining through a sieve.

- Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool before serving with a drizzle of the coulis.
