200g (7oz) self-raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
140g (5oz) golden caster sugar
2 large eggs
175g (6oz) Total Greek yogurt
2-3 drops of vanilla extract
25g (1oz) unsalted butter (melted)
1 tbsp semi-skimmed milk
2 tbsp rapeseed oil
5 tbsp Streamline strawberry jam
Fresh strawberries to decorate


  1. Lightly oil 2 x 18cm (2 x 7in) sandwich cake tins with a little rapeseed oil and line the bottom with greaseproof paper.
  2. Tip the flour, baking powder and sugar into a mixing bowl and combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, add the yogurt, vanilla, melted butter, milk and oil and stir until smooth.
  4. Tip this into the dry mixture and gently fold with a large metal spoon until well combined.
  5. Divide the mixture between the tins and level the tops. Bake for 20 mins at (180C/160C fan/gas 4) until the cakes have risen and spring back when you gently press the top.
  6. Let the cakes cool for a few minutes in the tins, then turn them out, remove the greaseproof paper and leave to cool on a cooling rack until completely cold.
  7. Upturn one of the cakes onto a serving plate and spread the streamline strawberry jam over. Gently place the other cake on top and decorate with slices of fresh strawberries.
