Ingredients

  • 150g sugar
  • 150g butter or margarine
  • 3 eggs
  • 150g self raising flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp hot water

Method

    1. Preheat the oven at 160C, 325 F,gas 3. Add the sugar and the butter to a bowl and whisk until very fluffy and a pale cream.
    2. Wisk the eggs in a mug with a fork and then add them gradually to the mixture with 1 tbsp of flour each time. Make sure you don't use all the flour.
    3. Add the rest of the flour and the baking powder to the mixture and fold it in gently.

To make it look even nicer add cherries round the edges and make lines going up and down with a fork.
