Method

Preheat the oven to 180C and line two 2 sandwich tins with grease proof paper or grease them with butter.

Now crack the eggs into your mixing bowl also adding the rest of the ingredients as you mix.

Blend together until combined but don’t over mix. You can use an electric mixer or mix with a spoon. The mixture will fall off a spoon easily when it’s ready.

Now divide the mixture evenly between the 2 loose base cake tins, using a spatula to scrape all the mixture from the bowl.

Gently smooth the surface of the cakes to even out the mixture.

Bake the cakes on the middle shelf of the oven for 25 minutes checking after 20 minutes. The cakes are ready when they are golden brown and springy to the touch.

Remove from the oven and cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Then run a knife around the inside edge of the tins and transfer to a cooling rack. 

Whilst the cakes are cooling put your cream in the blender and whisk on high until the cream goes thick and fluffy.

On a cake board place one cake upside down and spread the jam, then spread the whipped cream before putting the remaining sponge on top and sprinkling with caster sugar.
