Victoria sponge cake

6oz butter
6oz sugar
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.

Its a vanilla flavouring. I normally use vanilla extract rather than the essence as I think you get a better taste
