Victoria Sponge

I made this other day & had to share because it was SOOO yum! My cake making tastes good looks rubbish you’ve been warned.

Preheat oven 190/fan 170/GM5*


200 g caster sugar

200 g softened butter

200 g self raising flour*

4 eggs

1 teaspoon baking powder*

2 tablespoon milk*


100g butter

340 g jam

140 g icing sugar

Mix cakes ingredients all together. To reduce lumps sieve the flour & pre softened the butter.

Grease 2 sandwich tins or 1 bigger cake tin line with greaseproof paper & grease that. Bake for 20 minutes. I personally found it took 40 minutes & had to cover with foil to stop top burning.

Whilst that is cooking beat the icing sugar & butter together for filling.


If you used 2 tins skip this step. Once cake is cooked & cooled slice in half, easiest way is to hold top firm & slice through.

Smother in the butter icing & top with jam, replace top & dust with icing sugar.


Now this bit requires lot of attention but is easiest part….. EAT CAKE!!!
