Ingredients You'll Need

125g butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup milk
1/3 strawberry jam
3/4 cup thickened cream
icing sugar, for decorating


Preheat oven to moderate 180 degrees C/ 160 degrees C fan forced. Line 2 x 12 hole deep patty pan trays with paper patty cases.

Combine the butter, essence, sugar, eggs, flour and milk in the small bowl of electric mixer; beat on low speed until just combined. Increase the speed to medium, beat for about 3 minutes, or until mixture is smooth and changed to a paler colour.

Drop slightly rounded tablespoons of mixture in prepared pans. Bake for about 20 minutes or until cooked when tested. Transfer to wire rack to cool.

Cut a circle from top of cakes, down to about 1cm. Spread about 1/2 teaspoon jam around each cavity. Spoon the cream into cavities. Cut circles of cakes in half and place on top of the cream in wing shapes. Repeat with the remaining cakes and the jam and cream

Dust with sifted icing sugar.
