6oz s/r flour, caster sugar & stork (trust me - already soft and doesn't have strong taste like butter. Once you try it for both cakes and buttercream you'll never go back. Even people who "don't like buttercream" love it) 3 eggs 1 tsp vanilla essence
cream stork & sugar, add eggs, then fold in flour. Bake for 15-20 mins at gas 4
For buttercream, do it by eye/by taste but rule of thumb is double amount of icing sugar to stork, then tsp or 2 of vanilla.
