Sometimes there is nothing better than a classic traditional sponge cake…they are perfect for birthday’s, special occasions or simply a high tea. For this reason we decided to make a Victorian sponge for Candice’s baby shower, which was a few weeks ago now.
I am a huge fan of a vanilla sponge…love them…they are light and delicious. They also remind me of summer days, especially when paired with strawberries and cream…for me that is the perfect combo but let you imagination go wild as you can make any flavour combinations.
I adapted this delicious recipe from the fantastic food blogger – Sarah Graham. She is the host for The Art of Baking Course, run through Yuppiechef Cooking School…which I recently completed. Sarah is awesome and I love her recipes…she not only has a love for food but a great understanding of it and complementing flavours. Go check out her blog – A Foodie Lives Here…it is so worth a visit!
Hints & tips :
- The sponge is delicate, so be careful when putting it together as it can crack easily
- Be careful not to put too much filling or it will just squeeze out the sides
- You change the flavour by adding a Passion Fruit coulis instead of chopped strawberries or all some strawberry jam to give it more of a strawberry flavour
