Victoria Sandwich Cake- Classic

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope that you are all well, and that the new year is already bursting with excitement, goals and achievements.

Just to test those resolutions, of no cake, what SO ever, I thought I would share with you the most mouth watering Victoria sponge cake ever.... yes EVER.


To make this very naughty, new year resolution killer you will need:

225g self raising flour
225g unsalted butter
225g caster sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

for the filling: 

Your favourite jam... as much as you enjoy
whipped cream.



Pre heat your oven to 160c. 

I used the all in one method, so basically you heap everything into your mixer, handheld or standing and mix until just combined.

I like to start with the eggs, then sugar, then butter, then flour & baking powder and a dash of vanilla.

The mixture should fall of your spoon easily, if it doesn't add a drop of milk.

place in your preheated oven on the same shelf for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. You'll know when its done, as the cake will spring back when pressed.

Take out of the oven, and leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out onto wire racks.

leave to cool completely, and then slather it in your filling and sandwich together.

Et voila a delicious treat!
