Victoria Sponge English Cake

England has a long and proud baking and pastry tradition, with cakes being a key part of the country’s culinary culture. From Victoria Sponge to Bakewell Tart, English cake recipes are steeped in history as much as they are in flavor. They are made with simple ingredients like flour, sugar, butter, and eggs, and they can range from light and fluffy to dense and moist. In this blog, we’ll be covering everything about the Victoria Sponge English cake. 

Victoria Sponge Cake

One of the most popular English cakes is the Victoria Sponge. This classic two-layer sponge cake features buttercream filling and jam in between the layers. The cake is named after Queen Victoria, who was known for her love of afternoon tea—specifically, with a slice of sponge cake! The cake itself is light yet moist thanks to both sugar and eggs in the recipe; this classic dessert is often enjoyed for special occasions such as birthdays or holidays.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients and the making process.
