Serves 8 to 10

  1. Preheat oven to 360oF. Prepare two 9-inch, round, spring-form pans by coating the bottom and sides of the pans with butter and flour.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla.
  4. Slowly stir in flour and baking powder, and mix until you have a smooth batter.
  5. Pour the batter into prepared pans.
  6. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  7. Cool for 5 minutes, remove from the pans, and cool on a rack.
  8. For the filling: Cut the vanilla bean in half and scrape out the seeds into a medium mixing bowl with heavy cream and sugar. Beat into whipped cream.
  9. Place strawberries and jam in a pan and heat up for a few minutes. Set aside to cool.
  10. To assemble: Place one of the cakes on a nice serving platter. Spread the jam and cream on the first layer. Then place the other cake on top.
  11. Dust the whole cake with powdered sugar and serve.
