Procedure edit

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C (392 °F). Grease and line a baking sheet.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  3. Rub the butter into the flour mixture with your fingers until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  4. Add milk gradually to the mixture, mixing to make a soft dough.
  5. Turn dough onto a floured board, and divide in two parts.
  6. Pat each part to flatten slightly, then roll out into a circle and place on the baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes. Take the cakes out of the oven and leave them to cool completely.
  8. Split each cake in half horizontally, and spread each layer with buttercream.
  9. Sweeten strawberries to taste with sugar, then heat in a pan until warmed.
  10. Remove strawberries from the heat, and crush them slightly.
  11. Layer the berries between the cakes, and spread some on the top layer.
  12. Cover the top with whipped cream.
