Easy victoria sponge cake recipe
This easy victoria sponge cake is wonderful if you have guests popping in for afternoon tea. Well to be honest I make it even without the guests coming 😉 But all the same it is so easy to make and you can have a wonderful cake made within the hour!
160g self raising flour
3 large eggs
Firstly preheat your oven to 170C / gas mark 3 and line two round cake tins with grease proof paper.
Cream the margarine and butter together until light and fluffy.
Add beaten egg one at a time.
Gently fold in the sieved flour.
Pour evenly into two round greased tins.
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes until firm and golden.
Leave in the tins to cool down for approx 5 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
Once cool put the filling of your choice. I normally make mine with just spreading with strawberry jam but this time I put a little butter icing in.
Sprinkle with sugar and enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed this easy victoria sponge cake recipe 🙂
Have a lovely day x
