Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease and line 2 x 6 inch circular baking tins.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, combine melted butter, sugar, eggs, oil, milk and vanilla, then whisk until smooth.

Step 3

Sift in the flour and add the baking powder and salt.

Step 4

Add in the pulp of passionfruit and all of the raspberries. Stir until a smooth batter forms.

Step 5

Divide the mixture evenly between the two cake tins and bang lightly on the kitchen bench. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden and an inserted skewer comes out clean.

Step 6

Cool the cakes in the tins for 5 minutes before turning out onto wire racks to cool completely.

Step 7

Make the icing by creaming the butter and icing sugar together, and then continuing to whip while gradually adding the hot milk and vanilla.

Step 8

Level off the cakes. Spread icing over the bottom cake and then top with half the remaining raspberries and passionfruit pulp. Place the second cake on top and repeat.
