Mrs Beeton’s Victoria Sandwich Recipe

Mrs Beeton’s Victoria Sandwich Recipe

Lets celebrate the summer with a Mrs Beeton’s Victoria sandwich, a classic recipe which dates back to the 19th century!You could imagine the glorious victoria sandwich being baked to perfection in a traditional style kitchen similar to our very own Hollinwood Oak collection here at Deelux. Victoria sponge cake is the simplest cake recipes of them all and sometimes its wonderful to have a fairly plain cake and a cup of tea.

6oz self-raising flour

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C

Grease two 18cm / 7in cake tins

Beat the eggs in,one at a time with a little flour, to prevent curdling

Place in the oven for 20 minutes or until the cakes are brown and springy

Allow to cool a little, then turn out onto a wire rack

Allow to cool completely

Ingredients for the butter icing

5oz butter softened

10oz icing sugar
