Step 1 – With a hand blender or food processor, mix all of the batter ingredients thoroughly and let the batter chill for 24 hours.
Step 2 – Remove the batter from the fridge and pre heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Step 3 – Rub the dish/tray all around the inside with the soft butter and then evenly sprinkle with icing sugar so it sticks to the butter. Place the raspberries at the bottom of the baking dish and carefully pour the batter over the top making sure that the fruit is evenly spaced apart.
Step 4 – Place the dish in the oven for around 30 to 40 minutes till the batter rises and has become golden and crispy.
Step 5 – Remove from oven and let it rest for a few minutes. Serve with a final dusting of icing sugar and/or cream.
