Ingredients you will need…

175g (6 oz) of self-raising Flour

A pinch of salt

110g (4 oz) of soft Margarine

110g (4 oz) of Caster Sugar

2 large Eggs

1 tsp Vanilla Essence

Strawberry Jam / Raspberry Jam / Blackberry Jam

Whipped cream

Paper Baking Cases

How to make…

Preheat the oven to 190ºC/375ºF/Gas5.

  1. Combine the flour, salt, margarine, caster sugar, eggs and vanilla essence together in a bowl and beat until absolutely smooth for about 1 – 2 minutes.
  2. Then using a spoon, drop an equal quantity of the mixture into the paper cases and place the cases on a baking tray.
  3. Bake on the shelf just above the centre of the oven for approximately 15 – 20 minutes or until the cakes are well risen and golden.  Then remove them to a wire rack and leave to cool.
  4. When they’re cool, take a sharp knife and cut the top of each about ½ inch (1 cm) from the edge of the cake. Cut each top in half and set aside.
  5. Fill the cavity of each cake with about a tablespoon of fresh whipped cream and a teaspoon of jam, then sit the two top pieces of cake on top like butterfly wings.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
