Victoria Sponge

How to make the perfect Victoria Sponge Cake:

Hey guys, it鈥檚 Bubblegum, and today, I鈥檓 going to be blogging a little differently. I鈥檓 going to show you a recipe on how to make the most amazing Victoria sponge that you鈥檒l have ever eaten. Follow the instructions carefully and you will end up with a great cake!

You will need:

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 200g caster sugar

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 1 tsp vanilla extract

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 4 medium eggs

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 200g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 About 60g jam

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 250ml double cream, whipped

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 icing sugar, for dusting

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 200g self-raising flour, plus some extra for dusting

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 200g unsalted butter, softened, plus a little extra for greasing


路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Grease and flour 2 x 20cm sandwich tins. Beat the butter, vanilla extract and the sugar in a bowl until it鈥檚 at a creamy consistency. Gradually, mix in the eggs (put them in one by one) then fold in the flour and combine.

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Split the mix equally between the cake tins, then place into the oven and bake for about 20 mins (you鈥檒l need an adult鈥檚 help when you are doing anything with the oven!). Once they have risen and are a golden brown, take them out of the oven. When gently pushed in the middle, the cakes should spring straight back up. After you have removed them from the oven, allow the cakes to cool for 5 mins in the tin, before turning out onto a wire rack and cooling completely.

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Spread the jam onto one cake - do not put the jam on both sides - and top with the whipped double cream. Sandwich the cakes together and dust with the extra icing sugar.

Double Bracket: Handy tip:
Place a toothpick in the centre of the cake. If it comes out clean, it鈥檚 cooked!

I hope you enjoy using this recipe! Make sure to look on other Year 6 blogger pages!
