    Cream together the softened butter and golden caster sugar on a medium speed until light and fluffy.

    Add the eggs one by one following each with a spoonful of the flour. Mix until evenly combined.

  4. Step 4:

    Add the flour to the bowl and mix until fully incorporated.

    Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until well risen and golden. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool.
