About this recipe: A simple Victoria sponge recipe that I use repeatedly, but I adapt it every time I make it and vary the outcome. Has gone down well every time. I usually bake it and give away! Otherwise I would eat all myself! I make it all by hand using the cream and fold method.
Serve with good quality cream or ice cream! If mixture curdles when eggs are being added, try adding a few spoons of flour. Avoid this by making sure that your eggs and butter are room temperature before starting.
