  2. Using a balloon whisk, whip the melted butter into the sugar until light and fluffy, then slowly beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  3. Gradually sift the flour, cornflour and baking powder together over the mixture, carefully folding it in with the balloon whisk.
  4. Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and springy to the touch.
  5. Turn out and cool on a wire rack, then cut horizontally into two layers.
  6. Beat the mascarpone with the caster sugar and a few drops of vanilla extract until smooth.
  7. Spread the jam over the bottom cake layer, then cover with the mascarpone mixture.
  8. Top with the other cake layer, sprinkle with icing sugar and serve.
A glass of Moscato or Malvasia di Pavia is the perfect complement.
