200g self-raising flour

200g unsalted butter, softened

200g caster sugar

4 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

4 tbsp milk

Strawberry jam, for filling

Whipped cream, for filling and topping

Icing sugar, for dusting



Preheat your air fryer to 160°C (320°F).

In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Sift the self-raising flour into the bowl and gently fold it into the mixture until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

Add the milk and stir until the batter is smooth and creamy.

Grease two 6-inch round cake pans and divide the batter evenly between them.

Place the cake pans in the preheated air fryer and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remove the cakes from the air fryer and let them cool completely on a wire rack.

Once cooled, spread a layer of strawberry jam on one cake and top with whipped cream. Place the second cake on top.

Decorate the top of the cake with more whipped cream and dust with icing sugar.

Serve and enjoy!
