  • 75g/3oz Shamrock Golden Caster Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Few drops of Goodall’s Vanilla Essence (optional)

Filling

  • Fresh Strawberries, sliced
  • 150ml/¼pt Whipped Cream

  7. When cold, spread one sponge with whipped cream and layer sliced strawberries on top. Then put second sponge on top to sandwich together. Dust with sieved icing sugar, if desired.
