Victoria Sponge Cake

It was one of those rainy nights which make you feel like reacquainted with your bed, duvet and pillow, then getting cosy with your laptop and a mug of hot chocolate, and loading up your favorite rom com (or action movie if you’re a guy). It was perfect. I did all this, except something was missing from the picture. A slice of cake. Since being in London, I haven’t been able to bake as often as I have in Hong Kong, so I left the comforts of my bed (after finding a recipe of course), and ventured on to bake my very first Victoria Sponge Cake. Quite an appropriate choice if I may say so myself to bake it here in the UK.

I got my recipe from this site:

I followed the recipe pretty closely, only changing the type of jam I used (blueberry because it was all I had), and adding bananas to it as well. Oh, and I used a different sized pan. I can’t quite remember what size it is, but when I baked it, I halved the batter, then baked it.

I’ve got to say, this cake is so easy to bake, and it was so good! I’m so glad I found this recipe because I’m sure that this is one that I will be using a lot in the future.

Hopefully the presentation will improve..
