Victoria Sponge

Literally, I told my husband about starting this blog and he told me I should start with a Victoria Sponge and I’m not going to disagree with him totally. I say totally as this is my second blog post and not my first but It’s definitely a beginning post.

I made this cake yesterday after work and I had Victoria on my mind actually anyway because who isn’t obsessed with ITV’s series Victoria on our screens every Sunday evening? So this seemed a very fitting bake for the beginning part of my week because as we all know it was her favourite sponge.

I actually have a bit of a thing for the royals, I love Kings & Queens. Anyway, I’m getting distracted. Here’s the recipe for how I make my Victoria Sponges.

Slightly Salted Butter 200g
Caster Sugar 200g
Self Raising Flour 200g
Eggs – 4 Medium Sized
Vanilla Extract 2 tsp
Baking Powder 1 tbsp

Raspberry Jam;
200g Local Raspberries
200g Jam Sugar
1 tsp Rose Water

Butter Icing;
Unsalted Butter 140g
Icing Sugar 280g
Milk 2 Tbsp
1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
