This traditional sponge cake is the perfect treat for afternoon tea and your toddler will love the different textures of the sponge, fresh cream and strawberries
Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark four.
Grease two 20-cm sandwich tins and line with baking paper.
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and add the butter, sugar and eggs. Mix together, then whisk well until smooth.
Divide the mixture evenly between the prepared tins and smooth the surfaces. Bake in the preheated oven for 25–30 minutes, or until well risen and golden brown and the cakes feel springy when lightly pressed.
Leave to cool in the tins for five minutes, then turn out and peel off the baking paper.
Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
Sandwich the cakes together with the raspberry jam, cream and strawberry halves. Dust with icing sugar and serve.
