  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a cake tray.

  • Start by soaking the cashews in boiling water for 15 minutes.

  • In a bowl mix together all of the cake ingredients, making sure everything is fully combined. Pour the mixture into a cake tin and bake for 23-25 minutes.

  • Whilst this cooks, add the raspberries to a saucepan with the maple syrup. Simmer this until you have a fairly thick coulis. Strain the mixture to remove the seeds and then place to the side for later use.

  • Add the cashews to the food processor with the other ingredients and blend until you have a thick creamy frosting. Take the raspberry coulis and stir some through the frosting so that you have a rippled effect.

  • Once the cakes have cooled, spread the frosting on to a cake and then sandwich with another. Spread some more frosting on top and then decorate with raspberries and more coulis.
