Victoria Sandwich Cake ~ Sweet and Simple Bake!


The time has come again to show case our monthly bake over at Sweet and Simple Bakes and this month Rosie presented us with a traditional classic British recipe for Victoria Sandwich Cake. This is the simplest of cakes with its light sponge and variety of fillings. I decided to omit the buttercream or whipped double cream and opt for a simple filling of strawberry jam and finished off with a sprinkling of sugar, perfect for serving with tea or coffee!



If you would like to re-create this classic recipe, you can find the recipe here.
