Pre-heat oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line two 20cm (8 inch) sandwich tins.

Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Gradually beat in the eggs and Natural Vanilla Extract, if the mixture starts to curdle, add a
little flour.

Fold in the remaining flour with a metal spoon.

Divide the mixture between the two tins and bake for approx. 25 minutes until golden brown
and firm to the touch.

Remove from oven and leave to cool before turning out onto a cooling rack.

To make the butter icing, place the butter in a bowl and beat until soft. Gradually sift and beat
in the icing sugar.

Spread the jam on one of the cakes and use the butter Icing to sandwich the two cakes together.
