For the sponge:

  • 150g self raising flour

  • 150g margarine
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp strawberry jam

For the cream cheese icing:

  • 300g cream cheese
  • 4 tbsp strawberry jam
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract


For the sponge:

1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees, line your loaf tin with baking paper and grease with margarine.

2. In a large mixing bowl add the flour, sugar, margarine and eggs. Mix until well combined.

3. Next, pour the cake mixture into the tin. With a tablespoon, make a line of jam in the middle of the mixture. While the cake bakes this will sink to the bottom 🙂

4. Next, bake for around 30-40 minuteskeep checking it until it is golden and bouncy.

For the cream cheese icing:

1. In a large mixing bowl add all of the icing ingredients. Mix with an electric whisk until combined.

2. I like to serve this on the side as it should be kept in the fridge. Keeping it separate also means you can warm the sponge before eating!

3. Serve up some warm sponge and top with chilled icing!

4. Next, enjoy! 🙂
