2 round sponge tins - for a Victoria sponge
24 cake cases
or 12 muffin cases

Step 4

cook for approx. 15-20 minutes - depends if you have a fan oven. Aga type ovens approx. 30 minutes

Step 5

Check cooked through by inserting a knife in the centre. When blade comes out clean then it's done

Ice with icing sugar or sift icing sugar over the top

Can double the mixture for more cakes!
Fabulous with custard for quick pud.
Ensure the butter is very soft - makes a better mixture.
