Should there be a lifetime achiever award for a cake recipe, I reckon the ‘basic sponge recipe’ that you use to create a classic Victoria sponge should win hands down. Such a lovely simple bake to make, and it’s versatility is endless.
I love the simplicity of a Victoria sponge, and I’ve yet to meet anybody that isn’t partial to a nice slice of this scrummy cake, filled with jam and buttercream. And, maybe you are like me and tend to enjoy cake most when you eat it for breakfast?!!
I’ve used various gluten free flours over the last few years to make Victoria sponges. So far, I’ve had the best results with Juvela gluten free mix and Sainsbury’s gf self raising flour.
