Victoria Sponge Recipe

(courtesy of a mash up of Mary Berry and my granny):



225g/8oz caster sugar

225g/8oz butter (at room temperature)

4 free-range eggs

225g/8oz self-raising flour

2 tsp baking powder

A dash of milk




Lashings of strawberry jam

200ml whipped double cream

Fresh strawberries



Panel Pitcher

Panel Shaker

Panel Batter Bowl

Panel Tumbler

Cake Plate 6",10" &12"


1 Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease and line two 20cm/8in sandwich tins with baking paper.


2 Cream together the butter and the sugar until pale. Add the eggs one at a time, then gradually add the flour and baking powder. Fold together until well combined (don't go mad with the mixer as this will beat all the air out of the mixture). Add a dash of milk if the mixture seems too thick (it should be easy dropping consistency).


3 Divide the mixture between the tins.


4 Bake the cakes on the middle shelf of the oven for 25 minutes. Check them after 20 minutes. The cakes are done when they’re golden-brown, coming away from the edge of the tins and a knife comes out clean.


5 Set aside to cool in their tins for 5 minutes and carefully turn them out onto a cooling rack.


6 Once cool(ish), if you like a fresh from the oven vibe, place one cake upside down onto a plate and spread it with plenty of jam. Whip 200ml double cream and spoon onto the jam. Slice as many strawberries as you like and add them to the pile.


7 Top with the second cake, top-side up. Sprinkle over the caster or icing sugar (your call).

This cake size is perfect for the 10" cake stand. Multiply your quantities by half as much again and use 25cm tins for the 12" stand. We made a silly muffin sized cake for the smallest, if, for some strange reason, you're being abstemious. If you're mixing by hand (though I highly recommend a Kitchenaid which is my single most favoured bit of kitchen kit) use the batter bowl to mix the ingredients stylishly. The jugs and the tumblers will make perfect elderflower cordial vessels to go with your tea time treat. Enjoy.
