Queen Victoria Sponge Cake | Cake Recipes

      I usually keep searching for cake recipes on the net. I came across a very easy recipe with simple ingredients in Jamie Oliver site called Victoria Sponge Cake. The name itself was tempting me to try it. The story goes that Queen Victoria always used to eat two slices of the cake before tea.
    When I served it to my family everyone asked where I bought this cake, thinking it was store made. They could not believe that I had made it. I made it many times. My family was joking that we have also become fans of this cake, just like Queen Victoria.

Kurinji, I haven't baked a Victoria Sponge Cake for a very very long time. That's the first cake I learnt to bake when I was 15. You brought back sweet memories.
