  • Using a metal spoon, fold in butter, milk and flour quickly and lightly.
  • Spoon mixture evenly into prepared tins. Bake for 15 minutes or until the sponges are golden and shrink from the sides of the tins. Leave sponges in tins for 5 minutes before turning onto wire rack to cool.
    Beat cream in medium bowl until stiff peaks form.
  • Using a flat-bladed knife, spread the cream evenly on one of the sponge layers.
