Preparation Time:

15 Minutes

Cooking Time:

12 - 15 Minutes


12 Cakes


  • 100g self-raising white flour

  • 100g butter, softened

  • 100g caster sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract

Cooking Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 170°C (fan 150°C, gas mark 3). Line a muffin tray with 10-12 paper cases.

Beat together the butter and sugar, then add in the eggs one at a time mixing between each addition. Add the vanilla extract.

Carefully fold in the flour until just incorporated.

Spoon the mixture into the paper cases and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden on top. Insert the tip of a knife into the cases to check that they are baked throughout. If they are ready the knife should be clean when removed from the sponge.

Allow to cool on a rack.
