Nutrition: per serving




  • 200 g Butter Unsalted, softened
  • 200 g Plain Flour
  • 200 g Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 tbsp Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • 300 g Icing Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Water


  • Sprinkles


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F and grease a 9-inch square pan with butter and line with parchment paper
  • In a mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugar until there are no traces of sugar
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking until fully incorporated after each addition. With the last egg add the vanilla extract
  • Add half of the plain flour and the baking powder then mix until just combined
  • Add the remaining flour along with the milk then mix until there are no traces of flour
  • Pour the batter into the tin and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the skewer comes out clean
  • Allow the cake to cool completely before preparing the glaze
  • In a small bowl add the icing sugar and the water then mix until well combined – the icing should slowly glide off the spoon when lifted, if it is too thick then add a drop of water at a time until the right consistency is reached
  • Pour the glaze on top of the cake then top with the sprinkles
  • Allow to set for 10 minutes, then cut into slices before serving
