When I bought my 2013 Teapot and Tea Calendar, I looked at all the months to see the pretty tea pictures. May had a recipe for a Victorian Sponge Cake, and I truly meant to make it and blog about it in the month of May but, Life got in the way. Although I did make it and had my quiet Teatime last Friday, I am just now getting around to posting about it.
Here is the picture of it on the calendar:
This is my Tea
My cake didn't rise as much as the one on the calendar. I went right by the recipe, but..... it was really good. Don't know why it didn't rise more.
I would make it again and should you try it please let me know how yours turns out.
Victoria Sponge Cake Recipe
I dusted mine with powdered sugar instead of the superfine sugar and added a tablespoon of strawberry jam on top. If anyone has trouble reading the recipe let me know and I'll edit and type it in.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!
