I also use this slightly larger version when I want the cakes to be taller or if I want to use a little of the mixture for some cupcakes too - like I did this Easter.
Why do I love the Victoria Sponge so much? It is basically 4 ingredients - butter, flour, caster sugar & eggs - so is quick to make.
Beat 225 g butter with 225 g of caster sugar till fluffy
Add Vanilla essence / extract - I use a vanilla powder I bought in Ethiopia that is strong so just a tiny bit is needed ...
Fold in 225g self raising flour
Divide between 2 greased & lined cake tins or 2 tins & some cupcakes. Bake at 180C for 20-25 min or until done when a knife comes out clean. Turn out, cool on racks.
When cool, sandwich together with jam of choice & whipped cream if liked ...
Sift icing sugar on top, put on the kettle & enjoy :)
Easter cakes & cupcakes ready for eating ...
