300g self-raising flour (or a gluten free option)

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 180°C, 160°C fan, Gas Mark 4. Grease a rectangular 30 x 20 cm baking tray and line with non-stick baking parchment using a little extra butter. Top tip: you can use the left over butter on the butter wrapper for this and it's a great job for a little one.

Pour the cake mixture into the baking tray. Smooth over lightly, then bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until golden and springy to the touch. Insert a knife to check it's cooked – it should come out clean. Leave in the tin for 10 minutes to cool a little, then move onto wire rack to cool completely.
