It doesn’t always have to be about new fangled flavour combinations and complicated methods. Sometimes what you need is the simplest thing to make you happy. Enter, The Victoria Sponge! This is a great British Classic using the simplest ingredients to create a really delicious tea-time treat which is just right for Summer picnics.


Start by weighing 3 large free-range eggs in their shells.

Whatever they weigh, you will need to measure the same weight of the following-

softened unsalted butter
caster sugar
self-raising flour

You will also need –

1 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tbsp whole milk


300ml double (heavy) cream
3 tsp caster sugar
a punnet of fresh LOCAL strawberries!
some caster sugar for sprinkling on top

    I would never ever add baking powder to a Victoria sponge cake. If you've creamed the butter and sugar correctly, and beaten in the eggs thoroughly, it should rise perfectly. Just be sure not to be heavy handed when folding in the flour – you don't want to beat out the air you just created. If you have a fancy mixer, like Jemma's, you can trust it to fold in the flour on its lowest setting. If you have a hand mixer, or food processor, then fold the flour in by hand (a figure of eight movement, using a spatula or large metal spoon). Although, using a machine might be why Jemma adds baking powder (?)

  12. In The Beginning Was The Word says:

    Guys as a born and bred Brit (Hertfordshire but now Stateside) I can't stress how important it is to pop your ingredients into the mixer, DO NOT put your ingredients in, 'pop' them in. There's a difference!

    Is it possible to get the timings for this to be cooked in a microwave, my electric oven is pants and I thought that this could be cooked in a microwave too. Love your channel 😍🤩😊

  21. Lucy Hayward says:

    Your cakes are amazing!! lovely Victoria Sponge.

  22. jed cee says:

    very nice. i have been baking victoria sponge cake as its my husbands fave. how do you make the cream not melting away ? everytime i do it it seems to ooze out from the cake .

  23. Daniel Kim says:

    So light fluffy and aestheticaly pleasing. But I am afraid the recipe creates a product that is too posh and refined so as to be intimidating. Can you please make a version that appeals to the Council House and Violent demographic? Just to be more inclusive and politically correct.

  24. Paige Stewart says:

    taste great
