Victoria Sandwich

Victoria Sandwich by Chef Shane Smith

The Victoria Sandwich is a classic, easy bake cake recipe. This one uses strawberry jam, but you can substitute for raspberry or your favourite jam for garnish. If you’ve never made a sponge cake, this a great way to get started!

Serves 10

Ingredients

  • 225g room temp butter
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 225g self raising flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 large eggs

Garnish

  • Whipped double cream
  • Strawberry Jam
  • Seasonal berries
  • Icing sugar

Method

  1. This is one of the easiest all in one sponge methods.
  2. Simply grease and line 2×8” round sandwich tins.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add the eggs, flour, sugar, butter and baking powder and mix until smooth.
  4. Divide this batter between the two tins and bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and springy to touch.
  5. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
  6. Once cooled, place one cake upside don on the cake stand, spread with a layer of jam and then with a layer of cream. Top with the remaining sponge topside up and dust with icing sugar and finish with seasonal berries.
