Victoria Sponge Cake

1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
pinch of salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
raspberry jam
powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit. Butter two 7 inch cake pans. Place the ingredients in a mixing bowl and blend by hand. Divide the mixture between the two pans and smooth the tops. Bake in the center of the oven for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean.

Place one of the cooled cakes on a serving plate and spread with raspberry jam. Place the other cake on top, then dust with powdered sugar. A stencil may be used if you wish to create a design on the cake top.
