4. Sift in the flour, baking powder and fold in the yogurt using a large metal spoon to create a dropping consistency

5. Divide the batter between the prepared tins and smooth the tops with spatula.

6. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 25-30 mins, or until golden and firm to the touch. Leave to cool slightly in the tins, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

7. Meanwhile prepare the fruit, cut, wash & dry

8. When the sponge cakes are cool, completely remove the lining papers and place one cake first on the serving plate

9. Using a spoon and a palette knife spread over half the crème fraiche or yogurt, drizzle over compote and a handful of berries
