1.

Preheat oven to 190°C. Grease two 20cm round cake tins with melted butter, then line each with baking paper. 

2.

Sift self-raising flour and cornflour into the bowl of an electric mixer. Add sugar, milk, extra butter, eggs and zest and whisk on high for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Fold in baking powder.

3.

Pour mixture into prepared tins. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden and cooked when tested with a skewer.

4.

Cool cakes in tins for 5 minutes, then turn out onto wire racks to cool completely. 

5.

Spread jam over 1 cake. Spread cream over jam, then top with other cake. Dust with icing sugar, top with raspberries and serve.
