Today is Glen’s Birthday! The girls and I have been busy all day baking, gluing and sticking various things ready for his Birthday tea!
Victoria sponge cake is a great Birthday cake as its so easy to make its a very tasty afternoon tea cake! Optional decoration of the football team, reindeer and mickey mouse (Merina’s addition!)
- 6 0z self raising flour
- 6 oz caster sugar
- 6 oz butter
- 3 eggs
- I make this as a mix in one cake! Add the flour, sugar, butter and eggs to a bowl mix really well until it makes a smooth mix.
- Pour the mixture into 2 round cake baking tins (you can use one tin but be prepared to cut the cake in half!) Make sure the tin is well greased and lined at the bottom with grease proof paper.
- Cook for 25 minutes at 180 c / Gas 4. Test with skewer if any cake mix comes out on it pop it back in the oven for 5 minutes.
- Sandwich together with whipped double cream and strawberry jam! Yummy!!
