Courting Cake

A gorgeous-looking Courting Cake taken from Around Britain cookbook.






Courting Cake

Ingredients

Butter 225g (8oz)

Caster sugar 225g (8oz)

Eggs 4, beaten

Self-raising flour 350g (12oz)

Milk 2–3 tbsp

Double cream 300ml (1⁄2 pint), whipped

Strawberries 225g (8oz), sliced

Icing sugar for dusting

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven 180°C/350°F/Gas 4 and grease and line three 18cm (7in) round sandwich cake tins.

2

Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs, beating well after each addition. Fold in the flour and then add enough milk to give a dropping consistency.

3

Divide the mixture between the three cake tins and bake in the oven for 25–30 minutes until well risen and firm. Turn out and leave to cool on a wire rack.

4

Whip the cream until it holds soft peaks. Sandwich together the cakes with the cream and strawberries, reserving a few for decoration. Dust the top with icing sugar and decorate with strawberries.
