  1. Prepare the Oven and Pan:
    • Preheat your oven to 160°C (fan-assisted).
    • Grease and line a 7-inch cake tin with parchment paper.
  2. Make the Cake Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract until the mixture is thick, creamy, and light in color. This should take about 5 minutes.

  3. Bake the Cake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin and smooth the top.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Prepare the Filling:
    • While the cake is baking, mix the double cream, icing sugar, and vanilla extract until the mixture is thick and creamy.
    • Transfer the cream mixture to a piping bag and chill in the refrigerator.
  5. Assemble the Cake:
    • Once the cake is completely cooled, slice it in half horizontally to create two layers.
    • Pipe the chilled cream between the two layers of cake.
    • Place the second layer of cake on top and spread the remaining cream evenly over the top of the cake.
  6. Prepare the Topping:
    • Slice some strawberries and mix them with a big dollop of strawberry jam.
    • Spread the strawberry topping over the top of the cake.
