225g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
110g caster sugar
85g unsalted butter2-3 tbsp milk
and an egg.
1tsp vanilla extract,
250g whipping cream,
3tbsp icing sugar,
a small punnet of strawberries.
Sift the flour, baking powder and sugar together and rub in the butter. Stir the beaten egg and milk into the ingredients. When the dough turns out soft but not too sticky, it is ready to roll out to a 3/4″ thickness. Cut 3″ circles from the dough, place on a greased baking tray and and bake in a preheated oven on 180 degrees for 10-15mins. Once baked to a golden colour, allow to cool.
Combine the vanilla extract, and icing sugar with the cream and whip to thicken. Sandwich the cream on the warm baked cakes with the strawberries.
Serve with a decent cup of tea.
