Recipes

VICTORIA SPONGE


4oz (100g) butter – softened   4oz (100g) caster sugar

4oz (100g) self-raising flour – sifted  2 eggs - beaten

Red jam

Bi carbonate of soda (optional)

Prepare two 7 inch (18cm) sandwich tins. Cream the butter and sugar together until very pale in colour and light in texture.  Beat in the eggs, slowly adding a little flour if the mixture curdles.  Gently fold in the flour with a metal spoon.  Divide equally between the two tins.  Bake at 180oC / 350oF / Gas Mark 4 for 25 – 30 minutes until well risen, golden and firm to the touch.  Leave in the tins for 3 – 4 minutes then turn out onto a cooling rack.  Leave until cold.  When cold, sandwich together with jam.  Castor sugar may be used for dusting.
