What's Cooking? Classic Victoria Sponge (minor disaster!)

Hi guys :) Welcome to this weeks What's Cooking? Blog Hop 
This week i made a  classic Victoria Sponge

What You'll Need:

3 large eggs
Few drops vanilla extract
175g soft butter 
175g caster sugar
175g self raising flour
4tbsp jam
icing sugar to dust

What You'll Do

 Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4
grease two sandwich tins and line with baking parchment

Lightly beat the eggs with the vanilla extract.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the sugr and butter until pale, light and fluffy 
 Gradually add the eggs, beating well after each addition

Sift the flour over the top and, using a metal spoon, fold in lightly until the mixture is smooth.
Divide he mixture between the prepared tins. Cook for 20 mins until golden and firm to the touch.

Remove cake from oven and sob silently when you realize your pathetic mini oven has burned the cake.
Remove from tin and flip the cake over.
Feign ignorance about the burned side.

Doesn't it look nice and golden? ;)

Add your jam and buttercream to each side 

Carefully flip one side on top of the other 
Dust with icing sugar
Slice and enjoy (you can stop holing your breath now ;)  )

In slightly happier news, i have sown all of my seeds and my windowsill looks like a mini greenhouse!

What's cooking in your house? 
Feel free to leave a recipe :)


  1. I have to say... that cake looks down right delicious! I've never had it before, but I think I'll be trying it soon :)

    Have a great week!


    1. You've never had a Victoria sponge? :o oh my goodness you have to try it! They are delicious!
      The secret to a perfect Victoria sponge is equal amounts of butter sugar eggs and flour :) if you have that it can't go wrong! (unless you have a rubbish oven like me ;) )


Thank you for your comments, they are always appreciated :) <3
