Just for fun!

A slice of cake with a book

Hey guys!

There is nothing better than a slice of cake with a book to cheer you up.
My particular favourite is a Victoria Sponge (it has the best name).
They are completely yummy and easy to make, even if you don’t bake.

So here is a recipe for a Victoria Sponge;

I always make two and then stick them together to make a bigger cake. If you want to do this you will need to double your ingredients, or you can make one and once cooled cut through the middle, to make two cakes, to then stick together.

Ingredients;

175g (6oz) butter, room temperature
175g (6oz) caster sugar
175g (6oz) self raising flour
3 eggs
1 teaspoon of baking powder
A few drops of vanilla essence
1 tablespoon of milk

To decorate;

Raspberry jam
Icing sugar

Preheat the oven to 190’C
1) mix the sugar and butter in a bowl until light and fluffy
2) add the eggs one at a time until all mixed in and smooth
3) the add flour, baking powder and vanilla essence and mix until fully mixed in
4) now add the milk and stir in

Put a piece of baking parchment in the bottom of your cake tin, spread butter around the sides of the cake tin, (to stop it sticking). Now pour the mixture into the tin and cook for 30 minutes until golden brown and risen.
To check push a knife through the centre of the cake and if it comes out clean its ready, if not put it back in.

Once the cake is out of the Tin and cooled right down spread jam around one piece of the cake then stick them together.
Dust the top of the cake with icing sugar and you are good to go 🙂

Eat and enjoy and maybe share a piece?
