Ingredients

  • 300g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 150g gooseberries, topped and tailed
  • 1 large egg
  • 250ml low-fat natural yogurt
  • 75ml sunflower oil
For the crumble topping
  • 50g salted butter, diced
  • 75g plain flour
  • 50g demerara sugar

Step by step

Get ahead
Keeps for 2-3 days in an airtight container, or can be frozen.
  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C, gas 5. Line the base and sides of a 23cm round springform tin with baking paper.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt into a mixing bowl. Stir in 75g of the caster sugar. Mix the rest of the caster sugar with the gooseberries. Set aside.
  3. For the crumble topping, in a bowl rub the butter into the plain flour; stir in the demerara sugar – it should form small clumps. Set aside.
  4. Beat the egg with the yogurt and oil and fold into the dry ingredients from step 2 to form a batter. Don’t overmix or the cake will be tough, but make sure there aren’t any pockets of flour. Spoon into the cake tin, smooth the surface and scatter the gooseberries on top, with any loose sugar. Add the crumble topping, then bake for 40-45 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
  5. Cool in the tin for 15 minutes, then unmould and cool completely on a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
