DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-heat oven to 190°C/375°F.
  • Grease and line the bases of three 7-inch round cake tins.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy.
  • Gradually add the eggs, a little at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Fold in the flour, and then add enough milk to give a soft dropping consistency.
  • Divide the mixture evenly between the prepared tins and bake for 25-30 minutes, until well risen and firm to the touch, swapping the position of the top and bottom cakes halfway through the cooking.
  • Turn out and leave to cool on a wire rack.
  • Whip the cream until it just holds its shape.
  • Sandwich the cakes together with the cream and the strawberries, reserving a few for decoration.
  • Dredge the top with icing sugar and decorate with the reserved strawberries.
