How to Make Victoria Sponge Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1-Heat oven to 335F.
    -Butter two 7-8 inches round tins and flour them or line with non-stick baking paper.
    -In a large bowl, beat all the cake ingredients together until you have a smooth, soft batter.
    -Divide the mixture between the tins, smooth the surface with a spatula or the back of a spoon, then bake for about 20 mins until golden and the cake springs back when pressed.
    -Turn onto a cooling rack and leave to cool completely.
  • 2**To assemble the cake (my way):
    -Pour orange, pineapple or mango juice (whatever you have in the fridge) over each sponge and let the cake soak all the juice.
    -Prepare the filling of your choice, i.e whipping cream with vanilla extract and a bit of sugar, put the filling over the 1st cake, then add the fruit of your choice.
    -Put the 2nd sponge cake, then cover it with the whipped cream. Decorate.
    -Refrigerate before serving (better in a closed cake box)
