Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced.

Step 2

Grease a 6cm-deep, 20cm (base) round springform pan and line base with baking paper. Place butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and using an electric mixer, beat for 5 to 6 minutes or until light and creamy and then add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition.

Step 3

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean and then let stand in pan for 10 minutes and then remove side from pan and slide cake onto a wire rack to cool.

Step 4

Place jam in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high (100%) for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until runny and then brush cake top with jam and serve with cream.

Step 5

NOTE - I have made the jam optional as I know I would not use it as I would be making this for the DH and he does not like his cakes glazed.
