Victoria Sponge

 Victoria Sponge

O.k.. so I might have gone a bit crazy with the cream, and quite possibly plonked on a few too many berries, but heck, spring is here, and I’m in a celebratory mood: Easter Sunday, a Royal wedding next week, and 3 day weekends abound. Whoo hoo, whoop whoop, whatever you say, I feel like I’m on a holiday when I have a slice of Victoria Sponge. My Mother in Law Norma refers to it as “Vicky Sponge,” a nickname which I adore, and always makes me giggle.  

This cake is light and fruity, and perfect for birthday parties, baby showers, or tea time…and it doesn’t hurt that it’s cute as a button. I wish I could have perfected the look of my cake, but the minute I sandwiched it together today, my son Jake started groaning over and over again, “Oh, Mommy makes the best cake! Oh, Mommy, my body needs cake! I need to have some cake!”  Needless to say, I took a few snaps and we all dug in. 

Victoria Sponge

8 oz butter at room temperature
8 oz unbleached caster sugar
4 medium free range eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla extract (no alcohol brand)
8 oz unbleached self raising flour
a few drops of milk to make the batter easier for pouring
fruit sweetened raspberry jam 
sliced strawberries and blueberries
1 1/2 cups whipped cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar for dusting

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
2. Grease and line 2 x 7 inch cake tins with parchment paper
3. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, then beat in one egg at a time, and stir in the vanilla extract.
4. Gently fold in the four, and if needed, add a few drops of milk to make it easier to pour into the baking tins.
5. Pour the batter into the two tins equally, and smooth with a spatula. 
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes. Remove from the tins and place onto a wire rack.
7. Sandwich the layers of cake with jam, whipped cream, fruit, and finally dust the cake with powdered sugar.
