      1. Pre-heat your oven to 170°C, 160°C Fan, Gas 4.
      2. Add all of the sponge ingredients into a mixing bowl (Stork, caster sugar, medium eggs, flour and baking powder) and beat with a wooden spoon for 2 - 3 minutes until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
      3. Lightly grease the bases and sides of two 20cm (8 inch) sandwich tins and line the bases with baking paper. Divide your mixture between the two tins.
      4. Pop the two sandwich tins in the middle of your pre-heated oven and bake for 30 - 35 minutes until golden.
      5. Leave to cool for 10 minutes then slide a palette knife around the sides of each cake to loosen. Remove from tin, peel the baking paper from the cakes and leave to cool on a wire rack.
      6. Mix your vanilla icing ingredients (icing sugar, Stork, milk & vanilla essence) in a bowl until smooth and spread through the middle and over the top of your cake.
      7. Spread the jam over the middle, sandwich the two pieces together and dust the top with icing sugar.
