Victoria sponge recipe | EG♡

Victoria sponge is a classic tea-time favourite. It’s also an English Classic. I love it so much, it’s definately one of my favourites cakes. I got this recipe from BBC good food and it turned out perfectly!

You will need:

For the cake:

-200g caster sugar

-200g softened butter

– 4 eggs,beaten

– 200g self raising flour

– 1 tsp baking powder

– 2tbsp milk

For the icing: 

-100g butter, softened

– 140g icing sugar, sifted

– drop vanilla extract ( optional )

-340g jam ( use the flavour you prefer, it’s usually strawberry/ raspberry )

– icing sugar to decorate 

  
Heat your oven to 190c/fan 170c/gas 5 and put grease proof paper into 2 20cm sandwich tins.

Beat all of the cake ingredients together until you have a smooth batter, then pour half into each tin.

Bake for 20 minutes. If you are using one tin, bake for 40 minutes. Once done, turn onto a cooling rack and leave to cool completely. If you don’t do this the buttercream will melt.

To make the buttercream, whisk the ingredients together until you have a smooth consistency.

Spread the buttercream over one cake making sure it’s completely cool and covered. Then spread jam on to the other cake and put both together to form a sandwich.

Dust with a little icing sugar & you’re done!

  
Serve with tea for a perfect English break!

Hope you enjoy your cake and have a sweet day!
