  1. Step 1:

    This video shows you how to make this cake. 


    Preheat the oven to 180ºC (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Grease and base-line two 18cm (7 inch) sandwich tins.

  2. Step 2:

    Cream the butter and golden caster sugar.

  3. Step 3:

    Add the eggs, a little at a time, to the creamed mixture, beating well.

  4. Step 4:

    Sift in the flour and fold in lightly. Divide the mixture into the prepared sandwich tins. Bake for 25 minutes until risen and golden brown.

  5. Step 5:

    Cool in the tins for about a minute, then turn out onto a wire rack until cool.

  6. Step 6:

    Prepare the buttercream by mixing together the butter and icing sugar. If you need to loosen the mixture, add a tiny splash of milk.


  7. Step 7:

    Once the cakes are completely cool, sandwich the cakes together with the jam and buttercream.
