Victoria Sponge

I have many recipes for a Victoria Sponge, but this is the best one I've used so far:
You will need:
  • 200g butter or margerine
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 4 free range eggs
  • 200g self raising flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 5ml vanilla flavouring
For chocolate alternative:
  • Reduce flour by 25g
  • Replace with 25g cocoa
When using Trex:
If you are baking your full mixture in one tin, please read the essential note below!

Method:
  1. Heat the oven to gas mark 4 / 350°F / 180°C
  2. Line two 6" baking tins - see note below
  3. Cream sugar and butter together
  4. Beat eggs and flavouring together and add to mixture a little at a time
  5. Fold in the flour and baking powder
  6. Divide between tins and spread out gently
  7. Bake for 20-25mins
  8. Turn out onto rack and allow to cool
  9. Sandwich together with buttercream and / or jam
Note: If you do not have two tins, you can add whole mixture to one tin. This will affect the cooking time!
If you do not have a cake heating core, lower the temperature of your oven (gas #3) to cook slower and longer!

I use this recipe and multiply it up for my cakes. I've used an extra 50% for one 12" tin but adjusted the cooking time and temperature to suit.
