Victoria Cake

The other day, I saw a gorgeous and yummy looking victoria cake and thus decided to make one myself. It was relatively easy and did not require too many ingredients. It was light, sweet and just wonderful! You should definitely try it. :)
Ingredients for sponge cake:
  • 4 eggs
  • 125g sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 125g flour
  • 60g butter +20g to grease the baking pan
  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees C. 
  2. In a pan, mix the eggs, salt and sugar. Put the pan over a bigger pan of hot water and never boiling (bain-marie method) and maintain at medium heat. 
  3. Mix well until the batter triples in volume and becomes light yellow. It takes roughly ten minutes and strong arms! The mix has to be kept warm but never hot. 
  4. Once you have reached the proper consistency, add the flour, little by little and mix very delicately with a wooden spoon. Once you have added half of the flour, add in the melted butter. Add the rest of the flour and continue mixing.
  5. You do not want to over-mix. The batter should be light and airy. 
  6. Put the batter in a buttered and floured baking pan. It should fill 2/3 of the baking pan, not more. 
  7. Bake for 30 minutes, check regularly if the centre is cooked by inserting a toothpick. If it comes out clean, then your cake is done!
  8. Remove from pan and put on a plate. Let cool and then cut the sponge cake in half horizontally. 
Ingredients whipped cream:
  • 250g cream
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 1 ice cube
  1. In your electric mixer, put all the ingredients together and beat until you get soft peaks. You should start slowly and increase speed gradually. 

  1. On the bottom part of your cake, put strawberry jam, whipped cream and raspberries. Cover with the top part. 
  2. Decorate with icing sugar and raspberries. 
  3. Enjoy!
*You could make the strawberry jam yourself!
