This is my mum’s “go to” cake. Easy and tasty.
Have the butter soft; ideally left out overnight. Cream it together with the sugar then add the remaining ingredients and combine well without beating too much. Divide the mixture between 2 cake tins (8.5 x 8.5 or so). Bake in the oven at 180 ºC (350 fahrenheit) for approximately 25 minutes. Let the halves cool, then sandwich them together with jam (or fruit) and cream.
