Method

  • Preheat the oven - my fan oven is 150°C - gas mark 4/180°C conventional oven for 30-40 mins.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar, then add the eggs one by one until incorporated. add the vanilla extract, flour cocoa powder and whisk again, finally add the sour cream and golden syrup.
  • Divide between the two tins and bake on the middle shelf.
  • Pour the raspberries, coconut, vanilla extract and some of the icing sugar into a bowl and mix (I used my ka balloon whisk) keep adding the icing sugar until the mixture is thick enough to spread.
  • When the cakes have cooled, spread the raspberry mixture on the top of each of them.
  • Melt the chocolate and cream in a saucepan, keep stirring until all the chocolate has melted. When the chocolate has cooled down a little spread on top of one of the sponges, then put the other on the top and pour the rest of the chocolate over the top, leave to set for about 15 mins (if you can wait that long) then dive in!
