How long will it take?

What’s the serving size?

Serves 8

What do I need?

  • 200g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 200g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • about 6 tbsp raspberry jam
  • 250ml double cream, whipped
  • icing sugar, for dusting

How do I make it?

  1. Heat oven to 190C.
  2. Grease and flour 2 x 20cm sandwich tins.
  3. Place the butter, sugar and vanilla extract into a bowl and beat well to a creamy consistency.
  4. Slowly beat in the eggs, one by one, then fold in the flour and mix well.
  5. Divide the mix between the cake tins, place into the oven and bake for about 20 mins until risen and golden brown. The cakes should spring back when gently pushed in the middle. When ready, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 mins in the tin, before turning out onto a wire rack and cooling completely.
  6. Spread the jam onto one cake and top with the cream. Sandwich the cakes together and dust with icing sugar.
