I made this other day & had to share because it was SOOO yum! My cake making tastes good looks rubbish you’ve been warned.
Preheat oven 190/fan 170/GM5*
200 g caster sugar
200 g softened butter
200 g self raising flour*
1 teaspoon baking powder*
2 tablespoon milk*
340 g jam
140 g icing sugar
Mix cakes ingredients all together. To reduce lumps sieve the flour & pre softened the butter.
Grease 2 sandwich tins or 1 bigger cake tin line with greaseproof paper & grease that. Bake for 20 minutes. I personally found it took 40 minutes & had to cover with foil to stop top burning.
Whilst that is cooking beat the icing sugar & butter together for filling.
If you used 2 tins skip this step. Once cake is cooked & cooled slice in half, easiest way is to hold top firm & slice through.
Smother in the butter icing & top with jam, replace top & dust with icing sugar.
Now this bit requires lot of attention but is easiest part….. EAT CAKE!!!
