I'M NOT SURE WHAT KIND OF CAKE THIS IS , I WAS ASKED TO MAKE ONE FOR A YOUNG MAN WHO IS HERE FROM ENGLAND AND IS FEELING PRETTY HOMESICK. IF ANYONE HAS A RECIPE YOU CAN SHARE I WOULD BE EVER SO GRATEFUL
I'm not sure. It makes me think of the movie "Calendar Girls" though!! Good luck!
check at www.recipezaar.com. They have pretty much every recipe you can think of.
thanks so much for your help. I found a couple of variations so I think I'm good to go.
You could sending a PM to MissBaritone. She is a member from the UK and I do believe that is her favourite cake (as per a past post)!
3 beaten eggs
6oz self raising flour
few drops vanilla essence
Cream the butter and sugar and vanilla together until pale and creamy. Add the egg a bit at a time putting a small spoon of flour in with each addition, beating well in between each addition. Fold in remaining flour. Divide mix between 2 greased and floured 7 inch tins. Bake at 180C for approx 30 mins. A skewer inserted shoud come out clean and the top if lightly pressed should spring back into place. Cool in tin for 5 mins, then turn out onto a cooling rack. When cold sandwich together with raspberry jam and dust the top with icing or castor sugar.
As someone said earlier it is my favourite cake but i like to put buttercream in the middle as well as jam
I forgot to mention earlier don't expect the layers of this cake to be very thick. When putting your filling in remember we don't put thick layers of filling in our cakes as you do. Just a thin layer of jam (you won't need a buttercream dam for the thickness we have it) and if you put buttercream or whipped cream in just a thin layer on the underside of the top layer is sufficient
WOW !!!!!!!!!!!! MissBaritone! You are incredible!!!
I just pmed you a minute ago !!!!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Of Course if you want to make a genuine english tea you should also serve the following
sandwiches (usually Ham or egg)
corned beef pie
hot dog sausages cut into small pieces
diced cheddar cheese
ready salted crisps
victoria sponge cake

MissBaritone, thanks for sharing so much information. You seem to inspire me all the time. I am definately going to make this cake and layer it with jam as you suggest and eat it....
