Victoria Sandwich


The Victoria Sandwich, ever so british don’t you think? The great thing about this recipe is that it uses the all in one method which makes it ever so convenient; it takes under 30 minutes to make and put in the oven! I don’t think you can go wrong on a Saturday afternoon with a cup of tea and a piece of cake. Lovely! There is so many recipes also online and one thing I think you HAVE to have in it is strawberry jam and buttercream to complete the classic of all classic cakes.


For the cake:

  • 225g flour
  • 225g sugar
  • 225g butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp baking powder

For the buttercream:

  • 100g butter
  • 140g icing sugar
  • 120g jam of choice


Method (cake):

  1. Grease two baking tins of equal size and using a piece of baking parchment, rub some butter round the sides and base of both tins.
  2. Using another piece of baking parchment, draw round the bottom of each tin and cut out; place this on top of the base of the tin.
  3. Break the eggs into a large mixing bowl, then add the butter, sugar, flour and baking powder.
  4. After each ingredient is added, beat well using an electric mixer.
  5. Divide the mixture evenly between both tins.
  6. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Method (buttercream):

  1. Beat the butter until smooth and creamy.
  2. Gradually add the icing sugar and beat continuously.
  3. Spread the buttercream across on of the sponges and then spread jam over the other.

DISCLAIMER: As I mentioned there is so many recipes, but I don’t know where the original recipe I used is by. If I find it, I will add the link.
