  • 225 g self-raising flour
  • 225 g caster sugar
  • 225 g margarine
  • 4 eggs
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder

Fillig and Decorating

  • 300 ml whipping cream 2x
  • 4 tbsp icing sugar
  • 400 g strawberries



  • Pre-heat the oven to 150º C. Grease the tin and line the bottom with a baking paper.
  • Measure all ingredients into a large bowl and beat them together until they are properly combined and fluffy. 
  • Pure the mixture into the tin, smooth the surface and bake in the oven for about 55 minutes.
  • Leave the cake to cool in the tin for a few minutes and then take out and let it cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Once cool you can cut the cake with a long knife horizontally in half. 

Filling and Decorating

  • With an electric whisk whip first cream and 2 tablespoons of icing sugar until it creates stiff peaks and folds. Don't over whisk as it would make a butter.
  • Spread the whipped cream over one half of the cake and sandwich the second sponge on top of it.
  • Whisk the remaining cream and sugar and spread it over the top. 
  • Decorate the top of the cake with strawberries.


The cake is done when the sponge shrinks from the edge of the tin a bit and the cake springs back if you gently press it. Another method is to use a cake tester, which can be a simple toothpick. It should come out clean when inserted into the centre of the sponge.
