Classic Victoria Sponge

Victoria Sponge is the Queen of the cakes!

Cake 2

This recipe is the one we always used at home when I was little so I have my Mum to thank for this delicious creation.

I’ve used ounces for ease as the ratio of eggs to dry ingredients is always half (just take a look at the ingredients list below, it makes sense, I promise, e.g. 8oZ flour to 4 eggs, get it?). This means if you want to make a bigger/ smaller cake it’s easy peasy to work out quantities.

The sponge is light and fluffy and butter icing creamy and sweet. The perfect partner to an afternoon cuppa!
