1 jar of St. Dalfour Strawberry Preserve

175g/6oz unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus extra for greasing

175g/6oz caster sugar

3 large free-range eggs, beaten

1 tsp vanilla extract

175g/6oz self-raising flour

300ml/10½fl oz double cream

icing sugar, for dusting

Method

Preheat your oven to 180C/Gas 5

 

Lightly grease your baking tins with butter

 

Cream the butter and caster sugar together until the mixture is pale and light

 

Gradually add the beaten eggs, mixing well between each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl from time to time. Add the vanilla extract and mix to combine

 

Sift the flour into the bowl and fold in until the mixture is glossy and smooth

 

Divide the mixture between the muffin tin cups

 

Bash the tray against your work surface to level out the mixture

 

Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for about 15 minutes until golden-brown and springy to the touch

 

Leave the cakes to cool in the tin for two minutes and then ease onto a wire cooling rack and leave to cool completely

 

Whip cream to soft peaks

 

Cut each cake in half horizontally with a bread knife

 

Add the cream in the middle of each cake base and the rest in dots around the edges. Drizzle the St. Dalfour Strawberry Preserve over the cream, place the sponge tops on and lightly sift icing sugar over the cakes

 

Serve and enjoy!
