3831045263831045262018-06-23There are times when only a slice of cake will do and when that time comes, I want Victoria sponge. Made right, it is light, buttery and gently sweet – elegant, simple and completely and utterly delicious.
Jam and buttercream is a popular choice for filling, but for me that combination is cloying. I keep the sweetness of the fillings low – a very thick layer of freshly whipped cream and juicy, fragrant, ripe summer berries.
No two Victoria sponges I have made have ever turned out the same, so don't worry if yours comes out a bit wonky. Any Victoria sponge you make, with any method, will be infinitely better than a cake you can buy in the supermarket. I promise.
