200g/7oz unsalted lactose free butter, softened

200g/7oz caster sugar

4 free-range eggs

200g/7oz gluten free self-raising flour

4 tbsp good-quality strawberry jam

250ml/9fl oz lightly whipped lactose free double cream

250g/9oz strawberries, hulled

icing sugar, for dusting

Serves - 8


Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Line two 12-hole muffin trays with paper cases.

Cream the lactose free butter and sugar together, preferably with an electric whisk, in a large bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy. (This can take 5-7 minutes, so this stage should not be rushed.)

Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined. (If the mixture looks like it is curdling add a spoonful of the gluten free flour.)

Fold in the remaining gluten free flour with a metal spoon until you have a soft, smooth mixture.

Pipe or spoon the mixture into the paper cases until half full, add half a teaspoon of jam and then cover with the remaining cake mixture.

The finished cake case should be about three-quarters full.

Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the cakes are pale golden-brown and spring back when pressed gently with a finger.

Remove the cakes from the oven and set aside to cool on a wire rack.

Using a small knife make a well in the top of each cake by removing a disk of cake.

Fill this well with whipped lactose free  cream and top with a strawberry. Serve with a generous dusting of icing sugar.
