Yield: 8in Cake

Delicious light and fluffy classic Victoria sponge cake sandwiched with whipped cream and strawberry conserve or jam, with a dusting of icing (confectioners’) sugar.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180℃/350℉/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Grease and flour 2 x 18cm/7inch cake tins
  3. Cream the butter and the sugar together in a bowl until pale and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs, a little at a time, and stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Fold in the flour using a large metal spoon, adding a little extra milk if necessary, to create a batter with a soft dropping consistency.
  6. Divide the mixture between the cake tins and gently spread out with a spatula.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden-brown on top and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  8. Remove from the oven and set aside for 5 minutes, then remove from the tin and peel off the paper. Place onto a wire rack.
  9. Sandwich the cakes together with jam, lemon curd or whipped cream and berries or just enjoy on its own.

    That cake looks AWESOME. I’ve never heard this is particular type of sponge cake but i’m sure I’ll love it (just as soon as I can get my hands on one). I’ve always been someone who likes sponge cake more than pretty much everyone I know. I’ve never really tried any baking at all, but after reading that you’ve only been doing this since December of 2011 I figure that at most I’m only 10 months behind. Nice job with the pictures too. They look incredibly professional.

    I already have plans to have Chinese food tonight with a friend (just PF Chang’s – we’re not cooking), but this weekend I’ll certainly try to get some Victoria Sponge cake. Yum.

    Hi Lisa, love your classic Victoria sponge. Being a Brit, it is something I make on a regular basis. I am so pleased you like it and your photos of the cake are gorgeous! I am taking part in the Whitworths hallenge too so it is great to meet a fellow baker!
