A tried-and-true recipe for this classic teatime treat. Serve plain dusted with icing sugar, or slice and fill with jam, fresh berries and whipped cream for a special Victoria sandwich.
Whatever this is it most definitely isn't a Victoria Sponge Cake! Far too much butter and shouldn't need any milk. For an easy All-in-one recipe, weigh your eggs then add the equivalent of self raising flour, soft margarine and sugar (not icing sugar!) plus half to one teaspoon of baking powder, depending on whether you are using 2 eggs or 4. Bake at 180c or 160c fan for about 25-30 mins. Test for 'springiness' by touching the top, when it will be done. - 11 Sep 2011
