Combine the milk, egg, butter and canola oil. Stir into the dry ingredients. Fold in the walnuts. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Scatter the top with the raspberries. Sprinkle with caster sugar.

Bake for around 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes then lift out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
