Victoria Sponge cake!

For this Mother’s Day I decided to do a special video both with my Mum and my daughter. This is a very special video as Sia made my favourite cake of all time ‘The Victoria Sponge’ and my mum loves it too.

I fell in love with this cake when I moved to the U.K. many years ago and is still my most favourite cake. Not only is it delicious it is also really easy to make and tastes great with some fresh cream icing.

Here are the ingredients –

For the cake

200 gms unsalted softened butter
200 gms golden caster sugar
200 gms self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1 tbsp whole milk

For the icing

300 ml double cream
2 tbsp caster sugar
3-4 tbsp strawberry jam

Preheat oven at 180 C.

Method in the video.

  1. Hi Chetna! I’m Chetna too!
    Just wanted to know; if I want to make this into a chocolate sponge cake, would you recommend melting chocolate or cocoa powder for the mixture?
