Prep Time : 0:20 | Cook Time : 3:05 | Total Time : 3:25 | Serving : 8 person.


  • 250g frozen mixed berries

  • 1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar

  • 125g butter, softened

  • 1 cup (220g) caster sugar, extra

  • 3 Coles Australian Free Range Eggs

  • 1/2 cup (40g) desiccated coconut

  • 1/2 cup (75g) plain flour

  • 1/4 cup (40g) self-raising flour

  • 1/3 cup (95g) vanilla yoghurt

  • Pink liquid food colouring

  • Mixed berries, to decorate

Coconut frosting

  • 100g butter, softened

  • 500g icing sugar mixture

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) coconut milk


  • Step 1

    Combine berries and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until berries release their juices and mixture thickens slightly. Set aside to cool.

  • Step 2

    Use an electric mixer to beat butter and extra sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the coconut and combined flour and stir to combine. Stir in the yoghurt.

  • Step 3

    Spoon berry mixture evenly among eight 1-cup (250ml) jars. Top with one-third of the cake mixture. Tint the remaining cake mixture pink with food colouring. Spoon half the mixture evenly among the jars. Smooth surface. Tint remaining cake mixture a more intense pink with more food colouring. Divide evenly among jars and smooth surface (jars should only be about one-third to half full). Place lids loosely over jars.

  • Step 4

    Place half the jars in a slow cooker. Pour boiling water into the slow cooker to come 4cm up the side of the jars. Cover and cook for 1 1/2 hours on high or until a skewer inserted into the centres comes out clean. Set aside to cool. Repeat with the remaining jars.

  • Step 5

    To make the coconut frosting, use an electric mixer to beat the butter in a bowl until very pale. Add icing sugar, in batches, beating well after each addition. Beat in coconut milk. Place in a piping bag fitted with a 1cm fluted nozzle. Pipe frosting onto the cakes. Top with berries.
