Bake of the week! 26/01/2014

This week we thought we'd go simple with a recipe that will set you up for the rest of the year. Yep, that's right, you're 'gonna be the coolest guy at all the parties with your amazing cakes. We love our fancy bakes but sometimes it's nice to indulge in the simple pleasures (even if it is covered in pink icing).
Victoria Sponge (serves 8-10)

8oz sugar
8oz butter
8oz flour
4 eggs/egg substitute (using Orgran no egg will prevent it from rising so maybe try flax egg)

  • Preheat oven to gas mark 6.
  • Get 2 round cake tins, grease them with butter then line with baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until smooth.
  • Add a little of flour and eggs at a time until completely blended into the batter.
  • Pour the mixture in to the cake tins, half in each.
  • Bake in oven for around 30 mins, until golden & a knife put into the middle comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool on a rack until cool.
  • Now, it's up to you, we covered ours (only 1 half due to tin going walk about) in icing but traditionally a good wad of jam in between the 2 cakes is awesome!
  • YUM.
