- 600g (1lb 5oz) ripe blackberries (cleaned weight)

- 30x25x5cm deep (12x10x2in) baking tin, greased with a little butter

After hulling the berries, briefly wash them. You can either mix the sponge ingredients in a bowl or, alternatively, in a food processor, which would take you half the time. Beat the eggs first, then stir in the sugar, flour and butter. Mix well, then thoroughly beat in the baking powder.
Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, then add the blackberries, followed by the raspberries. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the centre of the cake is solid and not runny.
Serve warm or cold, sprinkled with extra sugar.
