Hints and Tips

  • Opt for another fresh berry like blackberries or blueberries if you can’t get hold of fresh raspberries. Frozen raspberries will add too much excess water to the batter, resulting in a split or possibly curdled result.
  • To conserve energy it is possible to cook this recipe without preheating the oven thanks to Miele’s quick heat up times.
