Yummy cakes are still on the menu when the urge overtakes me. I luckily have all the ingredients still in the house without buying anything additional. Of course when this supply of flour and sugar runs out I will buy more, as it is so much cheaper to be able to make your own treats from scratch than it is to buy a packet of cakes.
And of course you can convince yourself that there is slightly healthier edge to them too with eggs laid the same day that the cake is made included in the recipe.
8oz SR Flour
4oz Caster Sugar
4oz Butter or Margarine
Mix all together ingredients either in a food mixer or by hand with a wooden spoon.
Divide between two round cake tins (approx. 8"/20cm).
Cook for approx. 20-25 minutes.
Butter Cream Filling
6oz Icing Sugar
1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract
Beat all together really well and use to sandwich together the two sponges once they are completely cold. I also added a layer of homemade Strawberry Jam.
