Very simple recipe and an ideal birthday cake solution!

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 300 g Caster Sugar
  • 5 large Fresh Egg
  • 300 g Plain Flour
  • 300 g SuperValu Butter
    plus extra for greasing
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
For the filling and topping
  • 6 tbsp Strawberry Jam
  • 1 - SuperValu Icing Sugar
    for dusting
  • 300 g SuperValu Strawberries
    Sliced
  • 120 mls SuperValu Whipped Cream 350ml

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4. Grease two 20cm (8 inch) cake tins and line the bottoms with non-stick baking (parchment) paper. 

  2. Place the flour and baking powder in a bowl and mix together.

  3. In a large separate bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract, then fold in the flour. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared tins. 

  4. Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until a skewer or toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Turn out the sponges on to a wire rack and leave to cool.

  5. To sandwich the cake together, peel off the lining papers and spread half the jam on each sponge. Cover the jam on one sponge with the whipped cream and sliced  strawberries. Place the second sponge on top, jam-side down. Dust with icing sugar.
