Victoria Sandwich Cake/classic vanilla sponge cake recipe

This month’s bake at sweet and simple bakes was Victoria Sandwich cake. It is a timeless classic cake and the history behind the name of the cake is quite fascinating. As stated here , this cake was made popular in the Victorian times in the U.K. and named after Queen Victoria as her majesty was very fond of this particular cake.

Basically,in this cake, it consists of two sponges sandwiched together with a jam and castor sugar sprinkled on the top.

You can find the recipe here. I made exactly according to it. And used mixed fruit jam as that was available with me and I like the taste of it. I did not use buttercream icing. Maybe I will try using the next time I make this cake. I just added a thin layer of whipped cream above the jam.

The cake tasted great and was over in no time. It was quite easy baking this one and required less time too. Even my one year old loved it and wanted a big piece.:)

Thanks Rosie and Marie for posting this one. It was great. Looking forward for the next bake.
