Classic Victoria Sponge

Afternoon tea and cake, anyone?

victoria sponge recipe, cake, baking, cream jam cake

I'll have a large slice please!!

You will need:
200g caster sugar
200g butter at room temperature
4 eggs
200g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
150ml double cream, whipped (or whipping cream)
Jar of strawberry or raspberry jam

Heat the oven to 180C and grease two round 20cm tins. Mix together the butter and sugar, then mix in the eggs and flour until smooth. Pour into the tins and shake gently to even out the batter. Cook for 15 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Turn out onto a rack to cool, and whip the cream. When the cake is cool, add the jam to the bottom layer, the top with cream and sandwich together. Dust with icing sugar if you like.
