Recipe here:www.joyofbaking.com/cakes/VictoriaSpongeCake.html Stephanie Jaworski of Joyofbaking.com demonstrates how to make a Victoria Sponge Cake.
This cake is named after Queen Victoria and goes by the names Victoria Sponge or a Victoria Sandwich Cake. They say Queen Victoria was very fond of serving this cake at Afternoon Tea. Almost every British baking book I looked through has a recipe for this cake. The word “Sandwich” in “Victoria Sandwich” is referring to ‘sandwiching’ the two layers of cake with jam and sometimes whipped cream. Traditionally you decorate the top of the cake with just a sprinkling of caster or powdered sugar.
