Ingredients

For the cake
  • 250g soft salted butter
  • 250g caster sugar
  • zest of 3 lemons
  • 100g mascarpone
  • 4 large eggs
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 150g raspberries
For the decoration
  • 150g raspberries
  • 150g mascarpone
  • 150ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar, plus extra to dust
  • 50g lemon curd
  • pared zest of 1 lemon

Step by step

Get ahead
This loaf is best enjoyed on the day of baking. Leftovers keep for 1-2 days in the fridge.
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Grease and line a 900g loaf tin (about 10cm x 20cm on the base).
  2. Beat together the butter, sugar and lemon zest until light and fluffy, then add the mascarpone and beat until incorporated. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between each addition, then fold through the flour and baking powder until there are no flour pockets left. Carefully fold through the raspberries.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf tin, level the top and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the cake is risen and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for 30 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. To decorate, blitz a third of the raspberries to create a purée and press through a small sieve, discarding the pips. Whisk the mascarpone, double cream and icing sugar to soft peaks in a bowl. Spoon half the mixture into another bowl and whisk in the raspberry purée. Put the raspberry mascarpone cream, plain mascarpone cream and the lemon curd into three separate disposable piping bags and cut off the ends to give a 1cm opening. Pipe little pearls of each across the top of the cake, interspersing with the remaining fresh raspberries. Finish with the pared lemon zest and a dusting of icing sugar.
