If it’s good enough for a Queen, then it’s good enough for us!
This tea time treat originally earned it’s name after Queen Victoria who loved to have a slice of the sponge with her afternoon tea. Traditionally put together with Raspberry jam and cream, the Victoria Sandwich recipe is a sure classic.For a different take on this satisfying sponge, try changing the filling to lemon or orange curd for a citrus twist.
This recipe was introduced to the Tips section of our website thanks to the inspirational sponge’s created by Julia Costello (see image - left) - winner of the Swan 4-in-1 Cake Shop.
