For this month’s bake here @ Sweet & Simple Bakes we thought it would be enjoyable to bake a timeless classic cake. This cake was made popular in the Victorian times in the U.K. and named after Queen Victoria, and its lead to believe her majesty was very fond of this particular cake. It would be served for afternoon tea when ladies & gentlemen would take tea, sandwiches and cake for refreshments before their evening meal to bridge that hunger gap!
I have been baking this cake now since childhood and one recipe that has been truly tried and tested thought the years. It consists of two sponges that are sandwiched together with jam with the option of buttercream if you prefer, with a little caster sugar sprinkled over the top of the cake. I do hope that you come to enjoy baking this cake as much as I have throughout the years!
The recipe for Victoria Sandwich Cake can be found here.
