  • Scrape batter into prepared pan, tap to pop any hidden air
  • bubbles and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a tester inserted in the
  • center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool for 20 minutes, then remove from pan to cool completely. Wash, grease and a re-line pan with parchment paper. Once cake is cooled, return to pan.
  • For mousse, puree raspberries and strain – puree should measure to 2/3 cup (reserve any extra and sweeten lightly, for a coulis to serve with cake). Pour cold water over gelatin and stir.
