3 eggs, beaten
175g self raising flour
pinch of salt
Ingerdients to decorate
300g light mascarpone
100g fat-free fromage frais
Fresh Strawberries, Raspberries & Blueberries
Pre heat oven to 180C/gas 4.
Line 2 20cm/8 inch sponge tins with baking parchment.
Cream the butter & sugar together until the mixture is pale, light & fluffy.
Add the egg a little at a time, beating well after each addition.
Sift the flour & salt & add to the mixture, folding it in using a metal spoon or spatula.
Divide the mixture between the tins & smooth over.
Bake for 20-25 mins until risen, golden brown & just starting to shrink from the sides of the tins.
Remove from oven & leave to cool in the tins for 5 mins before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Stir a little raspberry jam into the other half of the mascarpone mixture, swirl the mixture on top of the cake, the top it off with the strawberries, raspberries & blueberries.
